Harriet swaying in the wind above her nest as the day comes to a close, watching over her land, joined by lots of little birds.

Harriet is back in the game!!!
She brings in a very large, very fresh pine branch.

She took a rest stop with it, pulled off some needles and into the nest with it.

You go Harriet!!!
 
With MUCH discussion, they place the branch together...
M pulls it towards the tree...

Harriet says NO...

And pulls it back towards the outter branch...

M looks like he's taking a deep breath and getting ready to shake his head, LOL!
Harriet always wins.
It's a whopper stick with some good camouflage on it.

Owls were heard dueting in the early morning hours(2-3am)

Harriet awake and to the nest, very vocal...

Followed quickly by M...

Both super vocal

The defense, is on.
☺
 
That adult could be one of their babes, pretty sure it was spotted earlier this morning. We just might well catch a glimpse of the heart, if Harriet allows it.

The owls should just give it up now.
 
8 nights after the owl attack, Harriet and M spend the night in their tree. Some alert vocals from them around 1am, but other than that all was quiet.

Foggy morning, wet birdies...

They spent last night in the nest tree. If one was sleeping the other was on guard. Short burst of vocals around 3am.
As the sun was rising, Harriet vocals and hops to the nest, followed by M.

Brief discussion, Harriet back to the attic, M tests the bowl, again... ♡♡♡

Looking good ☆☆☆☆☆
 
It's been business as usual in the pine. Owls have backed down, it would seem.
Some adults have been passing through, but the power couple run them off, quickly.

M and his sticks... nest looks great and the crib rails keep getting taller.

Both in the attic, M tracks something and takes off towards the church...

This morning finds them in heavy fog and they have switched to the right highest branch to spend their nights.

They have a little more cover from the owls, should they decide to come back around.
Very smart.
:)
 
This was in the early morning, on Thursday. Thankfully the moon was shining, it gave Harriet and M a chance to defend, which she did.
Check your volume!

It's a whopper and now we have a problem, Harriet wants it, goes for it.
918a M stkin u.JPG.jpg

M is having nothing to do with that and jumps over her to get to it...He's standing on her and has the stick in his beak...

He quickly weaves it in place but not without getting in a bit trouble. LOL

The End.
 
...sticks and sticks and sticks.

Harriet is standing on top of the crib rails, M is in the bowl... gives you an idea of just how deep and fortified this castle is.
