JudyB i work in a hospital,it's very busy,we take many calls,i understand fully that they are a caring facility,but i'm of more straight-forward
approach,many Zoo's at times can make mistakes,i don't feel
at all that we should silence ourselves,it's just that kind of closed attitude,not to question i feel can lead to everything being swept under
the table,the fact that no infomation is released is of question,the thought
that the other bird just migrated would have been a very,very early migration,so i do not think for one second thats that is the case,i
understand people may get touchy at the zoo,they have a PR program like everyone else,
they raise money,they ask for donations,then why should they not be forthright! If they released infomation,then not much more would
possibly be said,but the fact that as you stated she's in a small cage,the chick at this nest
was also a female,no exercise!!!,that they are trying to put a tube down her throat,a full drawn out medical (maybe,maybe not?),that she's
a bird that is very unadaptable in captivity,so are they gonna be open or not,it's close to migration,
there's a lot this bird has got to learn,i visited the facebook page,theres natta,go figure,
i say to everyone,yes,i'll agree at times i can be tough,but to sit back,say nothing,just accept what is,well we know where that took us
has a society,all i ask is what!!! is going on
there,is that too much?

Does anyone know what this whispy thing is that has been floating in and out of the field of view. I saw it btw. approximately 4:18-4:25pm.
It was always appearing from the right side.

4:48pm 1 chick returns to the nest goes right to 9oclock spot and seems to resume eating from whatever is left of the fish.


I came for the eagles, and stayed for the friends I made

I think it is one of those spore pollen things rather like a dandelion seed pod, caught on a web near the cam perhaps. great catch of the fly off Luvtheos, Hello Terrywave
4:47 juvie in to claim the tail of the fish called a couple of times and has settled in to eat- seems quite hungry and is eating enthusiastically

Not sure what it is luvthe O's... it sort of reminds me of a bit of dandelion fluff..

5:05pm I think it is raining hard right now. I can see the water being pushed down stream by what I imagine is a strong wind
