The little pterodactyls are doing just fine - the one in front with the cram-packed full crop is the youngest chick - for those worried the smallest/youngest don't get their fair share  ;D

A star is born ... scary to think of Joli as a stage mom!  :o

S/he certainly is a cutie. I am looking forward to the "Oh no! I swallowed a leg, the foot is sticking out of my beak, and now I have to stand upright until I regurgitate the whole thing" photo.  :-*   ;D

The rain has started, but Joli isn't stuffing them into a corner or under her ... or not yet at least ...

When we designed this nest tray we made sure it was big enough but not so big that the chicks couldn't get under a small overhang at the back of the box - just enough to help keep them drier if the rain really starts coming down.  Besides it seems every chick at this site loves finding the nooks and crannies at this site.

Dennis, Eye-Spy and I were off working behind the scenes to keep everything running smoothly - means didn't get to spend time checking the cams.
All the chicks are fine, weather was great - sunny, warm, enough clouds to keep from being too hot - great for the chicks and the adults alike.  It was basically a day of eating and sleeping!  And the chicks are rockstars at both!

New View at Logan.  The building and the wind were causing some wicked shaking on the PTZ camera which was most noticeable when we were zoomed it.  Made it very difficult to get an accurate count of eggs and chicks so we prepped a camera to install next to the nest-tray when we installed it.  That cam had technical difficulties and so we thought we'd fix it at banding.  The winds have been increasingly strong this year - the storm on the weekend, proved that.  Eye-Spy had a replacement camera all ready to go so a quick count of the days since hatching and a look at the weather and off we went.  Old camera came off to reduce unnecessary stuff near the nestbox, new camera installed and a couple of photos taken of the chicks to give us our first good look at them.  Joli being a good mama tried to impress upon us the need to leave (didn't work) but her chicks barely blinked at us.  We had choreographed the whole process to minimize time of the roof and we were on/off in less than 5 minutes and Joli was settled back by her chicks (and not yelling anymore) before we'd left the roof.  A job well done, that is already giving us a better eye on this little family.

Earlier this morning while the sun was still shining on the nest-tray

And just in the last hour - nest-tray is moving into the shade for the rest of the day

In both images you can see the chicks are making it very difficult for Joli to wrangle them ... like usual, at 10 days its like a switch gets flipped.  As of today, the oldest chick is 14 days old, the youngest 11.  And none of them want to be "under" Mom unless they can't find shade anywhere else!

Think I'm starting to see a pattern in the chicks' behaviour ...  ::)

Today I watched one of the chick do a half decent job of waddling across the nestbox so that he could collapse on his sib -  he (or she) is the one looking straight at the camera ....
