Here's a little happy news, or happier news ...

We had a chick go down at another nestsite, not old enough to fledge but about the same body size as the Logan chicks but a few days younger.  Unfortunately, we couldn't safely for the adults and chicks at that site, we couldn't put the chick back so we decided to foster the chick with Joli and Hart.  Lots of room, playmates, a wickedly protective mom and a dad who's a bad provider and a nestsite that is accessible and safer than others.  So after having the chick checked out, we got the tot (big tot) installed at Logan and then we sat down and watched on the cams.  Didn't take long for her (we believe) to make friends with her cousins (remember all the chicks in town are cousins one way or another) and after a meal courtesy of Joli, everyone settled down to sleep in a pile last night.  This morning, Hart and Joli both fed the chick and the chick did some self-feeding, which the Logan chicks don't do much of if Joli & Hart are willing to feed them (pampered tots ;)). 

We haven't fostered, or needed to foster chicks, in a number of years - nice to see it working just like I remember it from way back when.

First Logan chick (the male)  fledged this morning just after dawn and came back to his cousin just before noon for leftovers.  The Logan sisters are off - I believe on the ledge that curves around a corner so I can't follow them on camera.  Or they too could have fledged - the Logan chicks are 38-41 days old, so right in the zone for first flights.

Oooh, that was a hard decision.
Thanks for explaining what happened, TPC.
Very sad, indeed.

She broke her leg (haven't had one of those before) but so far everything else looks okay.  She's off to the vet for a full exam, x-rays et al.  From that they will decide on what to do for her leg and we go from there.

More news as I have it ...
Logan - sad news about our injured Logan chick I'm afraid

Oh, no!  Sad news?
What happened after the vet check?

Chick had additional injuries that would take time to heal beside the leg but it was when they went to repair said leg they found serious damage to her tendon which repairing the break wouldn't have been able to help.  Any one thing individually (except the tendon) the chick could have overcome with luck but her chances were greatly reduced and the outcome because of the tendon was grim.  Deciding factor was the poor quality of life this chick would "enjoy" IF it survived surgery and all the recovery afterwards.  The right decisions are mostly the hardest to have to make. 

On a more optimistic note, her siblings are ready to fledge and they are showing some real smarts when the wind today blows in puffs and gusts at the nestsite.  I think it was just poor timing - a few days older and she'd have figured out how better to brace herself against the wind, a few days earlier and she'd have still be hanging out in the nesttray and on the lower roof.

I hope her leg heals and she's okay to be released later.  Poor baby, she'll miss going south with her siblings.  :'(
