Today's observations from WWW on the WWs:

I have very little to report from West Winnipeg today.  I was at the site just before the rain started this morning and spotted our independant wanderer all alone on the ledge at the far end from the nest box.  S/he (in my mind it's probably Nero) was not doing much other than sitting on top of the world enjoying the view.  I did not spot any others flying or hanging around.

I managed a quick look this afternoon as well, I knew they were around based on TPC's food-fight posts, but was not able to spot anyone.  I guess they must be right in or around the nest box which I am not able to see from the ground. 

Hopefully there will be more of an air show tomorrow!

What is the striped red and white covered ?rope that seems irresistible to the juvie?

There is some work being done on a building not too too far from the nestsite - the cables safety lines for the folks working on the building ...

I love photo #0132 of Annie, dennis! There she goes, doing the "Hokey Pokey", just like her brother, Nero, in photo #0162! And they both seem to like to "put yer left foot in and shake it all about"! ;D

1620 hrs (local) - food fight in the nestbox.  The two girls aren't playing well with their food.  Aggie had it first, Annie wanted it and neither one is willing to let go - Aggie is currently tyring to pull it out of the box and therefore away from Annie.  I think they are also worried that Nero might find out they have treats ... no sign of him on-camera so they make finish it off before he realizes what he's missing ...

Whereas flights used to be choppy and a little frantic looking (IE:  flap flap flap GLIDE, flap flap flap flap, flapflapflapflapflap. . . .) they are now more elegant (IE: Strong flap, strong flap, GLIDE, GLIDE, GLIDE, GLIDEeeeeeeeeeeeeee, flap, glideeeeeeeeeeeeeee).

Great description, TPC!  That is exactly what it looks like!

1600 hrs (local) - two of the chicks are lying on their bellies on the corner of the building at the nestbox - they are lying nose to nose ... can't tell who they are as all three chicks are about the same size.

Report from WWW from yesterday ...

Today it is windy at West Winnipeg.  I did not spot any of our birds this morning but did get to see one of the kids flying around this afternoon. 

It was around 2pm when I ped by; I again didn't spot anyone on the roof or on any of the usual ledges or perches.  After a few minutes of watching I did see one of the kids flying circles quite high up in the sky.  You can see that the flyers are much stronger and more confident by the day, and they now go much higher than before.  I've also noticed that the effects of the wind are now much less visible, and that they fly her distances from the nest than they did at first.
