Riverside On Mother's Day

Last year, Mother's Day was the day we confirmed the deaths of the three 2008 eyasses.  The cause ended up being secondary poisoning by rodenticides.  It was on everyone's mind this Mother's Day.

This Mother's Day, we had healthy eyasses and a mother adding greenery to the nest.  It must need some freshening up with three babies.  It will be interesting to see if she also starts to add a guard rail.

The father flew by a few times while I was there and perched near the nest as I was leaving.  The mother was very cooperative and posed for Mother's Day photos with her young.
