Me too.
I can't believe how big they are getting.  Two are sleeping and one is sitting there looking around and it looks like he/she might be squawking.  So cute.

One of the chicks looks in distress   ??? - I may be wrong but it looks like he's breathing funny, keeps coughing or burping, like he's trying to gag something up - and there looks like something sticking out of his stomach - My sister thinks a feather tip stuck into him. (Rewound to approx. 4:55pm and watched for several minutes. )
She saw one of the chicks swallow and choke on a full feather earlier today and gag it up, then swallow it again, maybe it's stuck in his throat.  - Are we just paranoid TPC or is he acting strange?  ::) :P

All the chicks do that "gagging" behaviour - it can be that they ate a lot or they are attempting to yak up a pellet - as they get older more indigestible material gets into their diet - which sounds like a bad thing but yakking up a pellet is a kind of self-cleaning system from the stomach up.

Our PVR at the Radisson has finally given up the ghost so I'm afraid I can't go back and check recordings I'm afraid. Will keep an eye on them and see what I can see ...

Just ran back the couple of hours that the webcam buffers and the chicks looked fine - napping and hanging out with one of the adults (not sure who it was because of the light) and didn't see anything that causes me immediate concern.  None of the chicks were "gagging" and I couldn't see anything on any of the chicks that looks like it doesn't belong but they keep dropping back to sleep which is probably a good sign.

I should mention that I see the same behaviour with chicks in all the nests I have cameras on and I assume on any other nests we don't know about and probably in the McKenzie Seeds nest when the chick is older.  I think we don't have anything to worry about but I will check periodically tomorrow ....

Thanks for checking TPC!  ;D = He just looked really uncomfortable and acting totally different than the others - as usual, probably fretting for nothing.  :-\ ::) :P
