Walkin' Wednesday 2010 With Some Watchin'

The state updated the Falcon Wire News on Tuesday with this
5/11/2010 :: Brood CompleteThis year, there is a full brood of three nestlings. Last year and in 2006 there were five. In eight of the nine previous years the brood numbered four. In 2005, there was a full brood of three nestlings. The adult female at this nest site is now 12 years old. It is not unusual for a breeding bird of this age to lay one or two infertile eggs. The birds cannot be disturbed at this critical time so the remaining infertile egg will be retrieved after the fledglings have dispersed from the area. The real work now begins for the adult pair. They will have to hunt continuously to keep up with their rapidly growing brood.
Monday night I sat out and watched fur Digby and Jackson
I khlosed my eyes and made a wish fur their safe journies 'round to visit evFURRYone
Chekhking out the Oriental Poppies

Snowing, yet again, here in the Rockies. Good thing you post pretty pix of Khyra sniffing the spring flowers, otherwise I wouldn't see any!

Teddy Bear said...

It rained here on Monday too. The humans say that all the rain brings May flowers. Hmmmmm.

We think that flower is real purrty! It has been cold here in Napa... rain too. As always we like your walking video!

Monty says "Hi! Khyra!"

Snowie Baby said...

the flower is gorgeous! so are you!
we love yr walking videos!

Suka said...

hey Khyra,

Lovely just walkin' photos!

What a sweet pup you are to watch for Digby and Jackson and wish them safe journeys! I am sure they heard you and I bet you even saw them!

I will keep my paws crossed that the PF mom and dad find enough food so their babies grow up to be big and healthy PFs!


p.s. My human LOVES the pink oriental poppies! Beautiful photos!

Inigo Flufflebum and d'Artagnan Rumblepurr said...

We love watching YOU my puppy pal!

Mr Koda MD said...

Teal'c said...

Hiya, Teal'c here... We have similar things going on over here in Australia - only it is faaaaar too warm for this time of the year :( I think warm is better then cold but I guess a Husky sees that differently?!

Mango said...

Thanks for the update. Every time we looked yesterday, mom/dad was sitting on the baby birds. I guess it was a cold day.


The Thundering Herd said...

We are shocked, shocked, shocked. Someone did not know who you were? That happens to us all of the time.

P.S. - Khyra, we try to do the same thing you wanted to do to all flowers. Why do the humans stop us?

♥♥♥ The OP Pack ♥♥♥ said...

Khyra - maybe you need to share your fluffy tail tricks - do you go to the salon for special blow dryings? Or do you have some extensions in there? You sure do look extra floofy lately:)

Hope the rains stays away from the little fledglings. We had a duck in our city who was sitting on lots of eggs and suddenly disappeared overnight. They think a feral cat or coyote got her.

We hope we can steer the storms we just had away from your direction - wild and noisy night.

Did you enjoy the walk? It's going to rain here again.

giantspeckledchihuahua said...

The temperatures have dropped here, too and the wind is blowing at 55-65 miles an hour. ACK!

I love poppies dancing in a breeze!

houndstooth said...

I love those flower shots!

I think three babies is more than enough for any mama to take care of. I'll bet they grow up fast!


Martha and Bailey said...

Hi Khyra, imagine that car just pulling over and talking to you!
You were lucky they didn't know who you were or they would have been pestering you for a pawgraph!
Loved the irises!

That was very much sweet of you to be looking out fur Digby and Jackson...may they rest in peace.
Lovin those flowers too.

♥I am Holly♥ said...

That was so nice of you to sit under your tree and think about Digby and Jackson. I'm sure they had a safe passage by now and are running free and making friends. Nice pictures on your walk! We didn't go out because of the rain and now it's cold and calling for more rain. Mom is glad she didn't put her winter clothes away this year too early! Lots of love, Debbie and Holly

Ina in Alaska said...

That poppy sure is beautiful, but doesn't make us smile like your floofy tail does!

dewdana said...

Great PF shots and interesting data too. I wondered about that other egg. I am surprised the don't eat it evolution does not like wasted energy :-)
Moose says he can't wait to see your new khrakh... I told him that a lady such as yourself does not like to hear such talk but he insisted you would understand!

Elyse K said...

Dear Khyra -- thank woo for these pikhtures of the nestlings; how fast they're growing! The poppies are beautiful and so are WOO! I enjoyed sharing this spring walk.

Your fan in chilly Chicago,

BeadedTail said...

Those babies get bigger every day!

We enjoyed your walk again today! That man must not have internet access cause if he did, how could he not know he was in the presence of THE Khyra! Silly man.

Gus, Louie and Callie said...

An early walk is always nice.. You sure see some beautiful flowers on your walk...
Hope the rain has let up.. We have lots of overcast and they are saying more rain. We sure hope those people in OK get missed this time around..

Big Sloppy Kisses

Sagira said...

Those little birds are growing so fast.

Maggie and Mitch said...

That wind sure was pushing your fluffy tail along, Khyra!
Thank you once again for the beautiful salmon poppy shots!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Ginger Jasper said...

I am very glad that you sat and watched for our woofie friends, They will be running free now. Those birds are getting so big, it will be a full time job for their parents to feed them. The poppies are lovely. We also have gone back to realy cold weather. Hugs GJ xx

Huffle Mawson said...

I thought you all had spring now. It's getting colder and wetter here but we are heading into winter.

Siku Marie, White Dog said...

The poopies were lovely; hope the bad weather did not beat them to pieces! You all seemed to have some nasty weather...glad everyone stayed safe and warm (even the birdies).

K9friend said...

Glad you got in the nice walk before the rains came.
