Did You See? It’s Eggs-tra Lovey Dovey at the North Nest!

Activity is ramping up with both Mr. North and DNF making multiple trips in daily with very long branches, wonky sticks, bedding, leaves, and fluffy grasses and today DNF brought in a rabbit leg and waited for a bit then left it on the mattress as she flew away. Was that a gift for Mr. North? He found it within minutes and took it away to eat having a picnic in the treetop perch to the right, and then picked up a bit of grass from that branch and carried it back to the nest.

Then, as they got all kissy-face tonight I’m sure I heard Mr. North say …”Darling, are you sure I can’t lay the eggs for you?” Check our round-up for video!
