Livestream crashed a little after 6:15 p.m. and remained down until 6:50 PM, causing widespread panic among hawkaholics everywhere! Fortunately, CulleyL was logged into the direct Cornell feed that goes to Livestream and could still see what was happening. Thank you Culley; you are awesome! :)

6:38 PM  CulleyL: BR is basically balancing on the pigeon, wind's trying to knock her over and she's really enjoying that pigeon!
6:44 PM  CulleyL: WOW, Now she walked over by EZ and picked up the chipmunk!
6:44 PM  CulleyL: She's standing over EZ and now taking a bite of the chipmunk! Haven't seen these behaviors before. They don't usually eat at the nest.
6:45 PM  CulleyL: EZ now standing
6:45 PM  CulleyL: EZ flew off the nest, stage right.
6:46 PM  CulleyL: BR still holding the chipmunk.
6:46 PM  CulleyL: Two of the nestlings are standing up, one's still sleeping, now s/he's up.
6:49 PM  CulleyL: BR is thinking about feeding the nestlings, but decided to brood instead.
6:49 PM  CulleyL: Feet curled, she's snuggling down over the nestlings.
6:50 PM  CulleyL: The job of brooding is a lot more difficult than it was last week.
6:50 PM  LottiesMimi: And we're back!
6:50 PM  CulleyL: As you can see, not much left of that pigeon anymore.
6:51 PM  CulleyL: Most of the pigeon feathers have blown away now.
6:51 PM  CulleyL: That was pretty strange. Haven't seen them eat that much at the nest before. Little bites, yes, but not that much.
