Good Evening, Fellow NestWingWavers!!
Breakfish came very early as the main course was already on the nest. Dad delivered it last night so everyone could get an early start to the day. Arky and Dakota were fairly active today compared to the last few days. They preened, pranced around the nest, played Scare the Chatters, practiced nestorations and started wingersizing in earnest. And of course napped in-between all of those things. Dad even went to Sticks Depot and came back with a huge rail that just dropped into place on the left side of the nest. He even managed not to hit anyone with it. The chips of the day was one of the local resident chipmunks. He was the midday snack to top off crops again before the afternoon’s festivities.
The afternoon was a kind of a Follow my Leader session. Arky would wingersize then Dakota would wingersize. Arky would preen then Dakota would preen. Dakota would nap then Arky would nap, Arky would PS…well you get the idea. They both got in lots of exercise, tanning and naps.
Dinner was a fine northern pike that went down the hatches fairly quickly. And wonder of wonders Arky let Dakota nosh first without protest or bonk. They both got plenty to eat and Mom as is her wont swallowed the tail. A long carpet turning session followed dinner and the kids helped out as they could. Mom finally went up to the high perch and BBC parked the cam looking at the pond. We saw several nice flyways and fly-ins as Mom and Dad cruised around the near neighborhood. As darkness finally fell we watched the travelers return home in anticipation of the new work week.
On to the vids and pics of the day!
