Good Evening, Fellow SunAficionados!!
The prediction for the nest was rain for a good part of the day Monday but as usual they were a bit off with that estimate. The morning dawned beautiful and the drying out process began. Dad delivered a big tasty fishy for breakfish and everyone got to chow down and fill their crops. The day consisted of lots of preening, napping, and wingersizing. It was a good thing they had a big fishy for breakfish as the cupboard was bare for the rest of the day. Arky and Dakota both took to nibbling on anything in the nest that looked the least bit promising to provide a little nourishment.
Mom and Dad treated us to a couple of nice fly-ins and out as the panner was looking around today. We also spotted another turtle by the old goose nest and it looked like he helped himself to one of the eggs that remain there. Hope he doesn’t mind the smell of month old rotten eggs. One of our resident deer was seen feeding along the path in again today and at one point it was joined nearby by a red-winged blackbird. Unfortunately, Granny’s swift dark-coloured animal was no where to be seen today. The panner also gave us a look at the muddy waters flowing past the nest. No wonder not very many fish are caught from there.
As the day wore the kids ran down and slept more than anything else. As darkness fell they were snoring away contentedly on the nest as a Parent kept watch from the high perch.
On to the vids and pics of the day.

Well, I hope your week started as well as the one on the nest did. We should have another day or so of sunshine before the next rain is due in.
We’ll see you on the nest tomorrow!
