FrEYEday SkEYEday Free Fur All

Prior to the banding - Mom and Dad just KNEW something was up - we think they must have read the website and saw the plan!
Whilst it was going on - they do one 'here' and then leave the eyas there to keep the parents appeased
This shot was from last year's banding post on the blog - during this year's telekhast, they mentioned using these protekhtive devices to snag 'em!
It was a furry interesting broadkhast - some good khwestions - since there were only three to band this year, there was a bit more time for diskhussion - and Mom chukhkled when she heard she was not alone in her inkhorrekht sex'ing of them - even the expert was fooled too -Mom based her guess on the size difFURence between the three and figured they khouldn't all be one sex!
Banding Results:This year, for the first time, all of the nestlings are males. The banding team placed colored tape on the nestlings for the purpose of keeping track of them when they fledge. The largest of them, at 690 grams, is sporting white tape; the smallest, at 550 grams, blue and the middle sized nestling, at 590 grams, has red tape. Watch and rescue teams are now forming in anticipation of the first flight these young birds will make. They should begin fledging in about two weeks.

We'll keep our eyes on the site to see when they've arkhhived Thursday's banding and share it here!

Resting up from my furry full Thursday post - sorry it was a long one but all of those pawesome things needed to be shared - and now I want to share THIS
Stumpy and Mr B have khome up with the most awesome pawesome inkhredible khontest that we just know will khatch on khwikhkly!

KB said...

Those are some big nestlings! Thanks for the update!

Crazy way that Merdie lay down...

And, very funny - I had K and R in the city the other day, and they were such country bumpkins. They tried to go up every walkway to every house, convinced that they'd be welcomed. Then, they tried to go into a bunch of stores including "Cuts and curls by Carla". Fortunately, they were on leash :)

Ruby and Penny said...

Merdie looks so comfy.
Love Ruby & Penny

Ina in Alaska said...

Interesting banding update! We had bird rescue on Thursday afternoon in our driveway! When I arrived home from work there was a little tree sparrow sitting in my driveway. The little birdie just stayed put but its head was moving around! I offered it some water to see if it would get up or drink but it did not. So I carefully put little tree sparrow in a soft crate and took it to Bird Treatment Center.... will follow up later today to see if it made it. I suspect it flew into one of my windows....

3 doxies said...

That looks more like a broom than a PROTECTIVE thing-a-ma-jig.
I thinks Merdie was a gymnist at one time...I really bets her was...hehehe!

Cyber-sibes said...

Woo, I thought they were trying to shush the birdies too. Good luck little puffs f fluff! Be careful not to land in a yard with the jaws of death nearby!
Ha-roo roo, "pee-on-me" bush, that's furry funny, MFT!

Great Merdie shots today, but not enough of you, Khyra!

We're going to check out the contest.

Merdie, your froggy doggy pawsition is so funny. After seeing that video, we think Khyra has a Khrazy Khousin too!

Great pics Khyra and Merdie. We cheated with the video and saw it yesterday!
We were on you tube and noticed it.
Merdie sure knows how to have fun and was rolling about like a pup!
Lovely to see her having such a great time at Camp Khyra.

Danielle said...

Merdie, that looks to be the most un-comfortable position I've ever seen in my short life!!!

Sagira said...

reading about the birds is neat-o

Looks like you and Merdie are having a lot of fun. :)

Jan's Funny Farm said...

hey, that's a win-win for you. No matter who wins, you and your mom get the prize. We think that's a really neat thing for Stumpy to do.

Suka said...

hey Khyra and Merdie,

Merdie, you look great in your froggy pose! Do you do yoga? You are so limber!

Khyra, you have great taste in flowers! You seem to find the prettiest, most colorful flowers!

Cool info on the pawsome birdies! Thanks for the update!


Suka said...

p.s. Merdie, your fox action was hilarious! Was there dognip inside that fox, instead of stuffing? ;->

Khyra, what a cool contest Stumpy is doing! Can't wait to see the entries!


Heather and Ellie said...

That's quite the pic of Merdie doing froggy doggy!

Lovely pictures as always :)

Happy Friday!

Ginger Jasper said...

Mum and I laughed at Merdies froggy legs. Love the red flowers. Hey those birdies are so big and not long now until they fly away. Merdie looks to have a huge tongue. I bet she was tired after that walk.. Love GJ xx

Sonny said...

meemsnyc said...

Love the frog pose! The birdies are so cool. Pretty flowers too!

Siku Marie, White Dog said...

Merdie's frog position is almost total yoga mastery! Is there a transport this weekend...or at least a lamb bbq?

Tweedles -- that's me said...

I have seen you do that froggy lay down before.
I thought whoaaaaaaaa how do yo do that.
Well ,
I guess you are part froggy.
I cannot believe those birdies are gonnna fly!!'
Thank you for the beautious sky and stuff.

~Kim at Golden Pines~ said...

I always feel bad that I get here so late, but I'm always so glad that I stop by! I really enjoy my visits and seeing your pictures and of course hearing about what's going on, on your side of the Mason Dixon Line! :-)))

ocmist said...

Merdie's "froggy" is the way that OC tends to sit now. Khyra... You SCARED us. We thought we was going crazy with that one picture. Grammy had to scroll down to see some of your other pictures cause we thought that maybe we'd missed that you were a tri-pod! We could have sworn that you had four legs, but that one shot looks like you are missing a leg. We were glad to find out that we were right, and still wonder what happened to your leg in that one shot?!? The CCC

Joe Stains said...

holy khow that is the best froggy doggy I have ever seen. Tanner and I khannot even khompare!!
