Trio regrouped in dead roost tree

After being conspicuous by their absence during CSU Green’s ‘inspection’ today, I found our family back in their dead tree this evening. I had to walk down as I didn’t have the 4WD and I was very conscious of a very cross Diamond who followed me down, so I didn’t go too close (hence not that great photos).

Nice to see Vim having a meal of his own; in fact, he took it to his sister and shared it.

And here is the other sister (Rubi?) looking very aloof, a little higher in the tree.

Rubi perhaps, looking very cool and aloof

And a couple of landscape shots, showing the tower and a yellow box tree near the dead roost tree (Eucalyptus melliodora after which Mell was named)

    3 orphaned eaglets were taken in before they were old enuf to fledge. The sis fed the youngest male.
    There is preciousness in Birddom!

  2. I just love reading the updates, and really enjoy seeing the photos. Thank you Cilla!! Sure wish I lived close; the area looks beautiful and relaxing……I would just love to sit and watch their interactions.

  3. Cilla, the bcaw bev falconista said all 3 have FULL crops and she said all is normal. Encouraging. When they can hunt on their own they will leave the area to find a terrortory of their own
