Update: Aug 11 - To Sidney +++

Victoria/Sidney Nest

Re; Update on my Aug 11 Visit to Sidney NEST:

Yesterday I spent 3 hours at the Sidney nest -- saw Sid + both parents and a second juvenile soaring 1/2 - 1 mile away that could have been Vic or another of many nearby juveniles or others passing by. It never came near the nest.

Perspective Changes over Time -- well MAYBE? Maybe Not!

UPDATED --- Aug 5th Posting:

Now, Aug 5, 2006, it is interesting to point out that what was said then (April 8/06) -- is largely the same now, except that the cost of the computers and 60+ hard drives, Richard's travel and costs for over 6 months, not to mention my travel costs and time, have greatly extended our initial investment. --- read more ---->>>

Victoria/Sidney Nest

David Hancock reports in: July 27 --- Great visit to nest today.

Richard and I arrived at the nest 1000 and saw several long and gracious flights by both Victoria and Sidney -- both were beautiful on the wing and doing very well. Here Ihave posted some video I shot of our kids flying. I only saw two landings by Sidney but both were accurate and gracious. On his last flight Sidney took off out of sight to the west.

Victoria's first flight covered over 2 miles of flying and soaring. Over a two hour period she made about 5 flights out over the nest, the bay and the surrounding countryside. Dr. Bird was also there and we were equally impressed with the strength of Sidneys flights. His second flight took him a long way to the west out towards the northern tip of Pat Bay -- and then he did not return. Both parents sat the entire time (actually one did take a short flight to go over to where Victoria had gone out of sight -- but returned as did Victoria) but they basically spent the two hours on two of their favorite trees overlooking the Bay.

Our babies are well on the way to independence. They will likely spend less time in the nest and a few days after the parents think that they have done enough and both disappear, our kids will enter their independent life. I sure wish them well.

We've had to cut the original video down substantially due to the huge file size it was - far larger than the streaming video resolution you've been used to. Here are the flight bits from both birds - enjoy.

Update on Naming of "Victoria" and "Sidney"

Victoria/Sidney NestFirst, much thanks for all the kind comments and understanding. As stated earlier 'naming our kids' was a difficult and 'emotionally charged' issue for most of us.

Our contest had very specific rules set out on the Hancock House forum which we followed.
