Good Evening, Fellow EmptyNestizens!!
I do apologize for no blog last night but when I got home this morning very early (or very late from my perspective) the thought of pounding away on my keyboard just wasn’t in the cards. Sorry about that!
Both yesterday and today were typical post fledge days. Flights in and out of the tree and the kids hanging out in new places watching the wonders of the world go by. On Monday there were a couple of food deliveries to the nest with the now standard wrestling matches included. All was well though and the juvies hung out together on the nest, lying around soaking up rays, watching Mom and Dad come and go and squeeing at passing neighbors. It was fun to watch them move their heads in tandem as other birds would fly by the nest.
Tuesday was much the same except we saw even less of them. They mostly perched out of sight or away out at their car counting tree. They were seen very early and at a few more times during the day doing fly-ins and outs for us. Arky decided to help BBC get started on renovations to the cam mount by peeling off some old duct tape from the pipe portion of the mount. One of them spent a lot of time on top of the cam today and it was interesting to see PS fall through the frame every now and then. That juvie made a lovely fly off to the car count tree that we could follow all the way there. As evening deepened they were both in the nest tree but way out on the part over the river and their squees were echoing around the neighborhood.
On to the vids and pics!
