Big Mama enjoying food from Male Feb 15 2012

Skip and I enjoyed a visit to the Wexford Hawk nest.  We witnessed both male and female in nest, female calling to male, male bringing in the food and Big Mama eating most of it in a big swallow.
Big Mama was sitting pretty while Skip and I talked to Gary and Diane and enjoyed a coffee watching her.  Gary told us that they were both working on the nest today.

Great day at the nest.  But then I had to go to work. Sigh

Our love is here to stay...

Big Mama let loose with her distinctive call and dutiful Eggbert responded, bringing her an
unidentified mammal as a token of his love (she promptly gobbled it down).  Eggbert was
seen earlier carrying twigs to the nest and doing some work there, while Big Mama took
off  for a little hunting in the hydro field.

Big Mama and her mate, Eggbert are back on the scene!

We spotted Big Mama snapping twigs off the maple tree out back, while a small group of kamikaze
Blue Jays took swipes at her.  Oblivious, she soldiered on, methodically carrying twigs back to the
old nest.  The elusive Eggbert did a fly-by, but chose not to linger after he spotted a paparazzo.

Such is fame! Last photo is male Red-Tailed Hawk
