Walkin' Wednesday 2012

A Tale of two days - but furst some TAILS

 5/29/2012  ::   Significant Happenings!
There is much to report on activities at the nest ledge over the holiday weekend. On Saturday, May 26th at 6:48 AM, the blue-banded eyas became a fledgling. His first attempt at flight resulted in a rescue from a low roof where a skylight prevented him from taking another attempt at flight. He was placed on the roof of the Rachel Carson Building and has been flying well since. At 7:25 AM on Memorial Day, the red-banded eyas flew and returned to the ledge. Today, the red-banded fledgling was rescued from the street after a precarious flight from a nearby treetop. The fledgling was returned to the nest ledge.

Thursday and Friday of last week the adult male seemed to be exhibiting attraction behavior, that is, he was sending notice to any passing female that he's available. Friday at 6:25 PM, a female arrived at the nest ledge and flew away. She has been spotted sporadically since the original sighting. Whether or not she is banded remains to be determined.

I guess that explains why Mom didn't see them lurking on The Ledge on Sunday!!!

 As we mentioned yesterday on our khaption fur the PF pikh, we had weather Sunday night 

 Those pikhs were not akhtually taken in the dark - but it was dark enough, the flash on the khamera beastie kept engaging!

Here are TWO videos from Sunday night - ONE  where we THINK we'll get a walk  - haha fur us - but then there is the SEKHOND one we'll khall Runnin' Wednesday - just sayin'!!!

 But then, another day arrived - and we have the TALE of TWO WALKS - Enjoy!!!

 Even the khattledogs were taking refuge in their water hole - they saw me but said they'd khatch me another time!

 Khanine Makhrame was on the Khamp Khyra agenda fur the morning
 Even the fluffy tail was going limp!

Oh we like the tale of two walks. Bet you were trying to think of snow on that one walk Khyra. Our heathered friends are keeping us in suspense. Hope mom would come back and tell them when is the right time to fly. Have a happy day

Is Mr. Falcon thinking he'll go for two rounds this season? Oh my.
