Gordon Court did a very good thing by acting quickly and rescuing this poor little chick. According to him, the chick would not have lived another two hours, but now that the chick is in care, he feels that the little one will survive.

An encouraging update on the little chick rescued by Gordon Court. Information from Bev on June 18.

Dr. Court informed me today that our wee chick that was extracted from nest on Friday, is, so far, doing well. He was in a sorry state when he was retrieved. But as I said, we are fortunate to have a few things at our fingertips, to help in these situations. Some sites do not have this. So positive thoughts for this sweet one, that it continues to thrive.

From the site:

Update: June 19, 2018

The chick that was removed the other day (#4) is doing well; it's in an incubator, fed regularly, and growing daily.


I hope the little one continues to do well. Meantime, the cam is on DVR as usual.

sorry I have not been here. it has been a stressful season thus far. I have 6 sites to monitor, and a friend helps me. We have had fights , then watching at U  of A to make right call at right time, and then we had to keep careful watch at miscercordia as new female . (sending Gord, footage of misercordia, and then he made the call to go up two times , to check. luckily we have good male there. will post over there later)
when you see DVr just hit refresh, you will get live back Allison. I think they put up too many cams on their system. really hard to monitor all properly

. so back to U of A

the wee one was only in incubator for a bi t first day.  so far so good for it
our chicks are : 2 are 16days, 1 is 15 days and on eat treatment site is 11days old

if chase makes it to en d of season he will be lucky. He makes us laugh and frustrates us at same time. I think radisson may kill him ;D

our kids are looking good.







this morning. chase and radison a little more civil.



so I have asked two other people to organize watch this year. We will still do shifts and rescue and bring home if needed, but after 11 years of doing this I am growing weary and need to start interjecting some  other volunteers. this   also frees us ot do quick monitors at our other sites.

We had to rescue silver girl 3 times so she went out to pembina she just was to anxious to go and too headstrong , and was too heavy . she flew well but with her weight did not have quite enough we could have gone with putting her back up for a 4th  time , and when Pembina is not available this will happen , but we did not want  to risk a hit at maz, and that would have been next step. She is a big beautiful girl

unfortunately Green tape girl, hit the maz on her first flight. It broke my heart.  I just stood in shock and misbelief

I will post some pictures  before this  later tonight

but silver tape and 2 of her brothers will be flying on the pembina  . radisson and Chase do not know bu t we do.

I will update all other sites this weekend . we are exhausted
