I worry too, each year, I worry. Mostly for no good reason, but luckily TPC is there to hold our hands. They are adorable in that fluffy chick pile. ;)

Two chicks have butt scooted their way to the patio and enjoying an al fresco meal. There's no stopping them now. The little one inside has a very full crop.   ;D

Every time I look at those chicks, I'm gobsmacked at the SIZE of them - Woah!! - Good thing humans don't grow that fast!  :P
The chicks sure are looking great! - Healthy and Strong!   ;D

Looks like we will be banding these tots sometime in the next week - should have a date for you in a day or two. 

We are having problems with our recorder which affects more than just our recordings so while Eye-Spy is working on the tech, I am making no guarantees that we'll be able to stream it live but we are working very hard to get there!!  More news on that later too. 

And yes, we will be having a "Name the Chick" contest again this year!!  More news on that after the banding when we know what mix of genders we've got.

That's the plan but it is tied to the repairs on the recorder - without the recorder we can't remotely access the cameras at the nestbox - the sky-cam and the balcony-cam for sure - the ledge-cam will need to be replaced so likely not as we can't do work on it while the chicks are in the box for chick-safety reasons.  If we cant get the ledge cam to work we'll try to keep track of the with the skycam if we can ...

It's fun watching the chicks as they are starting to get more active now, but still so fluffy and cute!  I was wondering TPC do you notice a difference in banding when you have an experienced mother like Princess?  I mean are they calmer than the newer mothers, because they know what you are doing will not hurt their chicks or do they still tend to get really upset?

Going to see if I can't clean off that lens a bit at banding time .... hoped it was just moisture from all the rain ... maybe not though ...

It's NUTS how fast they grow.  :o - Starting to show their feathers too - soon all the white fluffy stuff will be gone. I sometimes wonder if it hurts to grow that fast. ...lol... ;D
