M15 meets his friend - muscovy duck again :laugh:

Image

In reality though, it is barely a friendship. On 29 Nov the muscovy duck apparently showed signs of not being happy with M's presence; it swam towards his direction and around, then stepped out and stood close nearby. Eventually, M15 took at it and chased the muscovy duck back into the water.

Also this encounter started with the duck waving it's wings vigorously in front of M15, as if to show off and show "just get going, my friend!" 8-)

Just for the interest - this is what happens when the Bald eagle's appetite is bigger than it's stomach..

Hatch counter (and later fledge counter) is on:
https://www.swfleaglecam.com/eagle-feed.html

In some few days (just now 4 days) we can await hatching.
I hope both two eggs will hatch and the chicks will fledge - the geat parents Harriet and M15 deserve it :thumbs:
