HK Builds His Nest

HK Builds His Nest

February 8, 2014

I arrived at Honey Bee a little after 1pm and found the Banded Female sitting in what remains of the Osprey Nest. When she started vocalizing, I knew something was about to happen.

 HK was arriving! He was also vocalizing.

HK came in very fast.

And, I think he landed on the Banded Female! She was NOT happy!

He immediately hopped off....backwards.

And perched on the tower.  The two Eagles regarded each other.

Then HK hopped back beside her.

They moved around for a bit, then HK bounced back out again.

She started moving around some then she bounced to the other side of the tower.

Several minutes later, they both flew in opposite directions. This is HK. He dropped low over the golf course for about 45 seconds and then.....

HK reappeared with this huge stick and headed in the direction of his nest.

I was not able to relocate him or the Banded Female that day. Time spent at Honey Bee: 2 hours 15 minutes.
