Nest-Building and Mating Have Begun!


Nest Building

While it is still not 100 percent certain that Big Red and Ezra will use the 2013 nest in 2014, the pair have visited the 2013 nest frequently in the past week. They have often brought sticks, which is a good sign. BR and Ez's (mostly BR's) comical struggles to deal with large sticks have been documented both on the Cornell cam and on BOG cam (Karels). For more information on nest building, see the post, Nest Building and the Function of Greenery.

And for the record, no, we still do not know for sure where BR is going to get her bark!


Mating

Sorry, BR and Ez, there is NO privacy for you! Karels caught BR and Ez mating on cam on Saturday, Feb. 23. Love is in the air!
