    I'm just fascinated with birds' nests, imagine building something so big with just your claws and beak and flying back and forth for just about each and every stick.

    He landed before the quaking stopped, as if he knew it would not get worse. He was temporarily startled, but when he saw there was nothing attacking the nest that he would have attacked from the air, he flew back to protect the nestlings

    okay as you can see the quake starts at 8:04 and the dad is very concerned by the shaking and he comes back temporarily so the baby's stay in the nest for about 5 to 4 seconds and then after probably 1 minute later the quake ends so they were okay if it was worse the nest would of fallen down. but thanks for the clip it was very amusing to watch as the earthquake started i was very concerned about the next but thank you for the clip!

    This is like my house. When mama bird returns she looks over the nest, and says to papa bird "what the hell did you do while I was gone?"

    Daddy makes an appearance and checks if all is ok after the quake. The babies tell him all about it! Then mom gets to take off and stretch her wings. :)

    He knew something was up! He got the chicks to lie low and flat. Their instinct is amazing.
    Earthquake apart - isn't it funny how beautiful most mammal babies are even when they grow into less photogenic adults, but beautiful birds like these eagles and snow white swans are not very pretty as young babies. I was an ugly duckling. At 66 is it too late to hope for a metamorphosis? Lol

    She sensed that before it actually hit. And like my mum when I dog came running toward me, she flew out of the way and left me to it 😂. Motherly instincts eh 🙄.
