HK Builds His Nest

HK Builds His Nest

HK still building 3.18.15.

HK continues to bring in lumber to the Honey Bee nest.  I was so very lucky that he flew close to me.
These are some of the best photos I have taken recently. Enjoy!

A New Girl In Town Visits HK. March 12, 2015

What started out as a disappointing morning at Honey Bee turned into a sunny afternoon. On my way home from another photo op, I stopped by HK's nest. There was an Eagle on the branch of the nest tree. I got out of my car to take a picture.
I only took a couple of shots, and returned to my car. I missed the Eagle leaving.
I sat there for about two minutes and saw movement in the nest tree. There was a second Eagle up there!

Again, I left my car and crossed the street. I moved slowly to try to see the Eagle. I thought I recognized this Eagle as HK.

I took a couple more shots and went back to the car.

Some neighborhood kids came out on skateboards, and the Eagle launched.

But, I did catch the take off and the bands confirmed this as HK!

So, I am left to wonder, who this pretty mysterious visitor to the nest tree was?

Just HK (again). March 4, 2015

Again I found HK in his nest tree. He was dining on a squirrel.

It took HK about 25 minutes to complete this meal. Then he hopped into the nest.

He moved some sticks around and then looked right at me! I love this picture!

HK left via the rear of the nest and I could not relocate him today.

Just HK: March 3, 2015

It's been a while since I have seen Sterling, but I have been told she is still in the Honey Bee area. HK continues to spend a good deal of time working on his nest.

HK looks over his work.

HK hops out to an adjacent branch and looks for Sterling, perhaps.

HK leaves the nest.

And treats me to a nice fly by.

HK lands just down from my car and performs some feaking.

HK continues to look around.

HK ruffles his feathers.

HK looks around some more.

I missed HK's departure and left soon after.
