The next day, a brave gray squirrel was the first visitor of the day, but he was quick to leave before Jackie arrived a minute later--she could obviously tell someone had been in her nest. Saturday was apparently their day off to hang out at the lake.
Both places she seemed to be staring at her feet a lot, so we're wondering if that squirrel left something behind that sticks to feet Wednesday's visits continued the intense work and even more intense play. Jackie was especially flirted this visit.

They started late morning and worked diligently for almost two hours. When Jackie sat again, Shadow arrived with a big stick that accidentally poked Jackie in the wing Shadow kept working on his sticks in the background while Jackie seemed to be checking out the new camera location--but then she went right back to her nest work No worries, though--her look was enough to get him to remove it immediately.
She spent the rest of the afternoon moving the big furniture from place to place, several times heading right towards the camera…. She tried phpne the nest bowl for a bit before ing him in the roost tree and chortling all the way to it. Just when Shadow bit like he was leaving, Jackie moved a stick, which of course got Shadow all interested again, so he came back in and moved more sticks.
And as Jackie headed to the left limb door to leave, Shadow couldn't stop himself from a little bite on her tail feathers Shadow ed her at one point Jackie did one more short nest-bowl sit before they headed out to the roost tree. She couldn't resist a little evening chortle Then they were both back in the nest for a bit of tangled together work, which always seems to lead to a little beaky bitey.
