HK started chattering.
There was an eagle overhead. It was the banded female.
Nothing materialized. HK finished his meal and began "feaking."
"Feaking" is the process Bald Eagles use to cleanse and grind their beaks. They rub the beak back and forth on a tree branch or other hard surface. Again, fascinating to watch.
HK turned so I could get a good look at his "HK" purple band.
HK spread his wings and hopped into the nest.
I missed his departure because I was distracted by a Yellow-bellied Sapsucker. But, that is another story.
Observation time: 2hours and 25 minutes.
