TPC, I've been wondering what could have happened at Logan ever since reading your latest tweet, and I can't help worrying about Faith. :(  Hopefully she is okay, as there are several possibilities, of course ... along with a good possibility that a fight occurred between Spencer and Faith, though I also wonder if Ella and Faith finished their fight off cam, and if Hart was then left available for Spencer (if that is Spencer).

It could be any of the above and because they were copulating and hanging out at the box when we saw them the time before last - and last time it was pouring rain. So we have left them alone for the last few days so they will hopefully get into a routine - we have no cams at the moment here so to check on them we have to get close enough to get clear sight lines so we have to be careful both how and when we check on them. We’ll be checking again soon and hopefully we’ll be able to confirm who’s there - Faith or Spencer or Hart or Spencer’s mate Loki or ??  As for Faith we have had no reports of injured birds or deaths and we saw her a couple of weeks after the fight so she looked to be in perfect health so she may just have pushed out or she could have been put off Hart when she lost Ty to Ella. We will be keeping a close eye on Logan and of course we’ll be checking for Faith wherever we are as well as on camera and on our travels around the province. Who knows maybe Hart and Faith are keeping a really big secret - not sure how likely that might be but this spring anything goes ...

Spencer's and Hart's chicks 1 and 2 hatched on Sunday the 24th and chick 3 hatched on Monday the 25th but died (not enough, maybe not any, food) on the 25th not long after we retrieved him/her.  Since then Spencer has been a good protective mom (rain doesn't faze her in the least) but she is a bit stingy at mealtimes (amount of food) which for chicks is not generally a good thing. Hart's not used to getting near the kids to feed them when they are young, that was always Joli's domain.  Each pair is different so we are hoping that we are starting to see Hart get in there to be more hands-on at meal times even though the chicks are young and that his presence/influence/participation will help encourage Spencer to feed more (either in amounts or in frequency).  The chicks seem to be progressing, perhaps not as fast or as fat as we have seen under the care of other moms - Princess, Joli, Jules and Beatrix most notably.  I should say that Spencer perhaps comes by it naturally - Hurricane was a bit of a light feeder when she started out too as I recall but she had Brooklyn as a mate and RCF can confirm but my memories of them in their early years (and maybe later years together too) was that they shared a lot more of the early chick-raising of duties right from the start than say other pairs.
