3/20/16 – Happy Spring Equinox! Wow, spring sure has sprung around here and there was much excitement on the nest today. The next-nest neighbors, the Hays eagles, have their first pip of the season (Other nests)!

Meanwhile, at the Harmar nest the female easily handled the harassment by the red-tailed hawk (scroll down for pictures), and later the male brought her something for dinner! If you have the stomach for it, take a look at these pics and tell us what you think it was! Use the comments, or send an email to harmareagle@gmail.com.

The Harmar female has some excitement while incubating eggs today! A red-tailed hawk took a swipe at her, but she saw it coming and handled it with no problem!
