It seems that it is not such a quite year for you after all.

We are looking to band the lone chick at West Winnipeg sometime in the next week.

It will be nice to get another look at this chick - it was so soaking wet when we rescued it on day 3 in the middle of the storm that I didn't know if tot would make it.  Chick was perkier and drier when we brought him/her back the next morning and without the other three eggs to fuss over, Ella seems to have done quite well.  Chick seems to be right about where it should be at this age. 

Glad she had at least one chick to tend to, will hopefully just put her that much further ahead on the learning curve for next year!

Congratulations to Ty and Ella .... its a Boy!

No question about his gender - didn't even have to measure.  Ty and Ella are close in size - she has more mass for sure, but when they are zipping & screaming as they fly past you it can be surprisingly hard to tell these two apart at first.  Ella has had a bad influence on our boy Ty - she's a very noisy, hair-trigger bird who doesn't settle down quickly and he's matching her beat for beat.  I hope she will settle down and be as ferocious as she likes but just a little shoot-first.  I also hope that with her experiences here this year, she will be able to handle more chicks next year - really don't want to make this rescuing chicks thing a habit, must too exhausting!!!

As always, thank you to Dennis for sharing his photos - he'll have more up on his photo gallery soon.

West Wpg chick at 5 days and 25 days...how fast they grow.
My granddaughters Sk & Er had come up with a name for the little boy..."Stanley"
I told them I would make sure TPC new about the name they choose...so I have now done my part.

The chick looks like the bell has rung and he's ready for round two ;D

He looks like a “Trooper”!
He was the lone chick of the batch, so to speak, so, he is a trooper!

I like the name Loner, or Lone Ranger.  Those "drumsticks" legs are looking pretty plump.

I like Stanley.  When I look at him it just seems to fit.  :)

I will try and capture more images of him when he's in the box and post them here.  Little terror.  ;)

Thank you for the great comparison photos of our growing West Winnipeg chick, Dennis. It's wonderful to see how much he’s changed and how strong he now appears. Sure hope he manages to stay out of trouble!
