5:07 pm
Meanwhile back on "da" nest, witness the slowest eater on the planet! Wasn't that fish dropped off at something like 11:00 am?

Mom brought in another and ended up scarfing that down herself very quickly. This must be some tough fish this one is eating. Oh My

And BET have a wonderful trip - we will miss you. wave

It only got to 14C today and probably not that "high" at the river. Brrr...

If Mom thinks one of her chicks has migrated she might go herself, it is her time, after all. I am very disappointed that the chick has not been released yet, despite the cool weather. Feathers are warm after all. I am out. Out

6:31 pm One chick on the nest at 9, calling - must be our hungry one.

I understand your concern Bluebird,it is very important due to the high risk of shock concerning this bird to be released immediately,
sometimes science can really drag things out,I had a small hawk here
in St.John's,a shark shinned hawk,it was on a varanda,a glass one also and it just could not grasp a technigue to fly up and out,i
shoveled the snow high after i got to the house i was called to,
high enough for this hawk to get on top of the varanda,then we decided to ignore the hawk and just leave her be,sure enough
with no interference after building her a bank to get to the right level,i
went home and the owners stated she was gone when they checked four hours later.At Ayer's they flung the osprey into the sky,
this really annoyed me,one that got in trouble and was weak,i think that
it's very important to put the hawk in a high perch on the edge of a building and let her instinctively fly off after she orientates to
her surroundings,a confused bird should never be flung into the air,it needs time
to orientate,please Rick if you read this,please ask them to allow the bird the decision when to fly,it's vital! for survival.
