Nest Update 7-23-14 – Touch And Go’s And Some Flubbed Landings…

Good Evening, Fellow ControlTowerDwellers!!

There was so much traffic in and out of the tree today it seemed we had moved to O’Hare Airport. The cam was down for most of the morning and when it finally came up we saw Mom come in for a landing. The juvies took turns flying out to the yonder dead tree perch and returning for a stay on the fledge branch below the cam. Some nice close ups of both by the panner gave us some great scaps. Later in the day both took turns on the nest again playing hockey with the turtle shell, moving sticks around, looking for the diving board from last year and resurrecting the bones from the fawn leg that had drifted over the edge of the nest.

The evening saw Dakota out on the yonder perch enjoying the sunset. Arky came flying in to join him but flubbed the landing and ended up somewhere below on a different perch than she had planned on. Dakota eventually went down to keep her company and both were seen flying off and then heard landing in the tree somewhere out of cam range. The resident orioles sang a lullaby as the light faded and another gorgeous MNB Nest day came to an end.

On to the vids and pics of the day!

    Today was a little better for staying on the Internet although I’m still not being very lucky to be watching when the kiddies come by so I’m glad for the blog and that the Blacks are grabbing videos!
    Arya is as cute as ever!
