Sunday Sharing

 From Saturday night - 
 6/28/2013  ::   Update on Juvenile Peregrines
All four of the Peregrine Falcon juveniles are flying confidently and honing their hunting skills. They have been spending less time at the ledge so as to become more independent. At times they return for rest, at nightfall, for protection from the elements, or if they are hungry and have had an unsuccessful hunt. After fledging, juveniles can remain dependent on their parents for up to two months. The adult falcons participate in their young's practice of flying and hunting, bringing them food if they have not been able to hunt their own, and even doing food drops to teach them how to dive. After these skills are attained to the best of their ability, the juveniles will leave the scrape permanently. They will continue to hunt and grow, and eventually they will search for a mate to nest and begin their life as a mature falcon, raising young as a parent themselves

 Mom took the khamera with her when she went to get the paper from the porch - since Mom and Dad weren't on the nest, she snagged some khwikhk shots - it DOES look like all three hatched!!!

At least your mom has finally learned the rules that if she goes to the GKP during YOUR time then the green paper$ are for YOU! We're glad the birdies are flying and we'll leave a light on for them so they can fly here! Hope all goes smoothly with the transport of the cuties today!

LOVE your corn puppy pics - cracked me up :)

Khyra, thank you for your note on our blog. We are so sorry about Khousin Merdie. My Mom was very fond of her -- every time she saw a picture of her where she was doing that cute thing with her back legs (doggie yoga?) she loved her more. Even though we are months late, we send you all our sincere sympathy.

XXOO, Newton

Hi Khyra! We're hearing "GKP" a little too often these days, don't you think?

I am missing #1 but M. R is taking good care of all of us. I suspect that #1 misses us even more than we miss her...
