Thank you very much for the detailed answer!Sunshine wrote: ↑January 16th, 2020, 1:27 amYes, for Harriet and also bold eagles in general this is a completely adequate behaviour. It is related to Harriet expressing the dominance, but also is usually part of the bonding ritual; by kicking the male's side and "yelling" at him, the female is also "inviting" him to mate. They strengthen their ties in this ritual, which intensifies with the start of a breeding season and is followed almost each time by mating.
Yet, in this case, the Harriet might have been rather stressed, seeing that E14 is not ok, and then "acting it out" in the display of this behaviour.
So it s an eagle foreplay.
Harriet and М15 talked a lot. I wish I knew the language of the Eagles.
