Nest Update 7-12-14 – A Clean Lip and Duck Hips….

Good Evening, Fellow Sun Soakers!!

It’s late and I just got home from a shoot so pardon the brevity and I’ll let the vids speak for the day. It seems Dakota is now without his lip pox so it is even harder to tell these 2 apart. But thats ok because we are happy just to get glimpses of them now that they have fledged. Arky did better than a glimpse today as she stayed in the tree for quite some time today. First was a preening session in the leaves off of the low perch and then scoping the nest for tidbits followed by a super flyoff toward the house across the way. Both juvies could be heard around the neighborhood during the day with one squeeing and the other answering. Late in the day a P delivered a duck that needed defeathering and the gymkhana was on. Steals, sneak attacks, chest bumps and lots of squeeing occupied the early evening hours. Darkness fell and our panner had the night off so we missed seeing the moon on the pond tonight.

On to the vids of the day!

    Talon, I can’t thank you enough for your tireless efforts to keep everyone informed & up to date. I’ve been gone for a week & a 1/2, if it wasn’t for you writing this blog I would (& many others) would be in the dark. It has taken me a couple of hours to catch up but I loved every minute of it! It doesn’t seem to be enough to simply say THANK You for all you do. i am astounded at the garbage that has been tossed your way.You handled all of it like a pro & as the kind soul you are. I hope you can let it roll off your shoulders. I wish you the best & send prayers for your health to improve. God Bless You!!
    ps. I whole-heartedly agree with all the glowing comments that were made about you this past week. I couldn’t have said it any better.
