"The Snitch is mine."

The nest building continues full speed ahead since last weekend. Here the male is bringing a small stick to the nest. Probably the smallest stick I've seen him bring. Usually he brings the big branches- some upto 5+ feet long and over an inch in diameter. The largest branches required both birds to work together to move and place it into the nest. The female brings small sticks and straw to line the nest. When the guy is not doing the heavy lifting, he is out fishing. Since they started building the nest, I've seen him bring at least 3 fish back to her a day. She gets the back half of the fish.
