Outta the Nest

SDP 3-6-12
So, why did Henrietta call her loyal mate back to the nest? This is why. She wanted to get out of the nest and enjoy some alone time.  She hopped onto this delightfully sunny perch adjacent to the nest, where she could have a good view over the household, yet feel as though she was having a bit of a getaway.   Shortly after checking in, Henry left, probably figuring the Mrs. could handle home security from her nearby vantage point.   Looking at her talons, I would concur.

Lovely light hitting this bird and I like the shadows, too. I would not mess with her talons!

I love the stories you tell about these birds. It is kind of as if you were a hawk interpreter.
