Saturday Sharing

 Look what Mom found when she khame home fur the daily shot - 
 She wasn't totally surprised bekhause when she looked just prior to heading to The GKP on FrEYEday, she thought the parents were in the nest - they were THAT big!
 Some of their memories fur us - Mom and Dad have 'em stashed somewhere fur they are in the yard - making lokhator noises - we just hope those mutant FoUR legged chikhkens - okay KHATS - don't find 'em furst ;-(
 FrEYEday morning - notice what had been posted since Mom chekhked on Thursday 
 5/29/2014  ::   Eyases Nearly Ready to Take Flight!
At 6:15 PM last evening, May 28th the black-banded male eyas fledged prematurely, catching a gust of wind while wing-flapping at the edge of the nest ledge. He was rescued by afterhours watch and rescue volunteers and taken to the roof of the Rachel Carson State Office Building. This eyas and his siblings are not quite ready to fledge on their own yet but will be within several days. At this point in their young lives, they are most vulnerable and watch and rescue activities can play a key role in their survival.
 FrEYEday evening

With THIS update when she logged on FrEYEday night:
 5/30/2014  ::   Fledging Update
Early this morning, the green-banded male made his first flight landing on a lower ledge of the Rachel Carson Building. After a few more short flights, the male landed on the Aberdeen Street sidewalk. He's was rescued, examined and released onto the building's roof. 

The black-banded male made some short flights and now is on a ledge of the neighboring Harrisburg University Building. 

The Falcon Watch and Rescue volunteers are keeping a close eye on the young fledges
 Okay Mom - ready? After all, we didn't walk Wednesday OR Thursday - and woo SO need it!
Get the skhort and the sneaks - I'll be ready!


Happy Saturday EvFURRYone!

Thursday Thanking and Thinking

 Wednesday evening's nest report
 Mom's khrakhkberry triggered the flash again - as it was khlouding up like it was going to rain - 
 Wednesday morning

 Looks like a gang of wing beak talon to see which 'baby' will go furst!
 My pal JR The Mail Kharrier is retiring this week - so Mom and I got him a khookie - and The Nice Bakery Department Manager Lady suggested dekhorating with bones and paw prints when we explained the okhkhasion - Mom and I gave it to him on Tuesday 
 Now fur sad thinking and thanking - this is from The Rotts 'n Pups Facebook page -

In August of 2011, Dexter (then Fonzi) was adopted by a lady in CT but things didn't work out for one reason or another and we had to find a home for this gorgeous boy quickly. We contacted our dear friend and fellow rescuer, Kim Carter, who is from CT and now lives in GA. Her best friends, Tom and Gail Stevenson, said they would take Fonzi at least to foster but they fell in love with him and ended up adopting him. He had the perfect life with a wonderful family and all was grand! Until a few days ago when he was diagnosed with a weird lung infection that was not responding to treatment; he had an appt with a vet from Cornell specialist to find out what the infection was but on May 20th he stopped breathing and died on the way to the ER Vet while his parents where performing CPR on him. Dexter was approximately 4 years old and WAY too young to leave this earth. Needless to say his family is totally devastated and our hearts go out to them. Thank you Tom and Gail for coming to the rescue for this wonderful pup when he needed you most and for giving him a great home. May he rest in peace and may your hearts mend soon.

Mom checkhked my blog fur she remembered Fonzi - and this was our post - even Auntie Di had been part of his transport
Mom didn't get home from The GKP until almost 7:30pm - she had one of those things that she doesn't usually do but she just knew she had to this time - someone that she knew since 1979 suddenly crossed The Human Rainbow Bridge this past Sunday - Phil was only 59 human years old - Mom worked with him for many many years -and had even gotten together with him for lunch a few times since their work lives took them away from their long term employer - she had so many memories from their times together - as well as memories with his wife and family SO she make a detour by the Celebration of Live for Phil - she's glad she did - even though she's so not fond of those things - of khourse, now she's wishing she had just one more lunch with him - Phil and his wife had bekhome fans of those retired racing dogs - and now a beawooty named Abby is missing one of her favorite humans - the family even rekhwested donations to Greyhound Rescue - I told Mom we should paws a few green paper$ in his memory - 

Have a Thanking and Thinking Thursday EvFURRYone!

PeeEssWoo: Yep she says - not's just...for now!

Walkin' Wednesday 2014

 Tuesday evening's progress on the nestlings - since it has stormed - and the khlouds stayed around, the flash on the khrakhkberry did its stuff - 
 PF shots - some from Monday after we had assembled our post fur Tuesday 

 and now from Tuesday

 Wingercise time!
 Where do those wee khottonballs go???
 Speaking of KHATton balls

 Now some khamera shots from Tuesday afternoon - 

We didn't get a chance fur a Walkin' Wednesday video this week - we were going to wait until Tuesday afternoon BUT the storms took away that opportunity SO Mom and I decided to take a short video of the nestlings - here is THEIR LINK - and since Mom has been trying not to invade their space, some of the front beds are in need of some pulling and stuff - once they've flown off into the wilds of the neighborhood, we'll work on that!

Happy Wednesday EvFURRYone!
