Four On The 15th Floor


This afternoon, one of the parents got off the khlutch whilst my mom was watching the live feed - video NOT food - and she saw there are now FOUR eggs under there! We've not been able to khatch a good shot of 'em from the still kham shots - so woo will have to take my woo fur it!
If you want to have some fun AND pass some time, check out the site http://www.dep.state.pa.us/dep/falcon/
There is a link to the media player live feed - it is always fun to LISTEN as the shot shows one of them on the khlutch yet the other arrives and kharries on like KHRAZY!
On Thursday, this was added to the info part of the page:
There are now three eggs in the nest. The adults will begin brooding for increasingly longer periods of time as the clutch grows. When the clutch is complete, most likely at four to five eggs, brooding will be continuous. The male and female share brooding duties; the male will sit 30 to 40 percent of the entire time it takes to hatch the full clutch.
It truly is a shared parenting!
We'll keep trying to get a shot of the eggs BUT this will have to hold woo over!

Khyra, this is very exciting. The only way Journey would share in the parenting around her is if he could just lay around! We gals do all the work around here. I wonder if we can take lessons from our flighted friends on how to train these guys. Every time a foster comes through it's up to us. Thanks for sharing the link. We'll spy on them too!

Thanks for the visit and khomment Rosemary!

Akhtually, as the eyasses begin to grow and thrive, Mom will go fur food more often - the females are larger than the males so they khan fly farther and kharry bakhk bigger bags of KFP!!

Oh yes, please do visit their site often - it is addikhtive!!!

Anytime my mom goes to Harrisburg, she'll swing by the building and park akhross the street and watch fur a while!!!!

Tank woo for all your comments on my blog! It's hard to get the Human Assistant to fix pictures and type what I want to say when nodoggy comments.

Sinjin is a big baby. But he's bothers H.A. more than me. Usually.

Have you ever seen trained falcons? I haven't. But H.A. has! He lived near the Air Force Academy for lotsa years.

He says falcons are smarter than Sibes. When they fly away, they come back! If you've been good to them.

Can you imagine chasing prey at 200 miles an hour? Woooooo-wee!

Mom thinks that's very nice that both parents share the duties. Some species would have had those pretty pink eggs for breakfast you know!
