Lift off today,

Discussion in 'Birds' started by Lou Buscher, Jun 22, 2007.

  1. Was it the first flight? I kind of like to think it was, as the bird was just roosting not all that far from the nest when I arrived and as I sat and watched I just could tell it was going to go. I raised my camera and took this one and when it didn’t go I dropped the camera down and off it went, I just watched and gave it a thumb up and a little handclap. It s flight carried it to another tree about 50 feet away where it came to roost again. I almost believe I heard it celebrate with a KeAh to its Mom.

    Nice little flight for the baby
     
  3. 50 feet is a lot if you haven't checked out the wings.

    Great update Lou

  5. Yes it was Gale and we got 2 more to go I hope as I saw all three today and I just cannot believe the way these birds have come on so fast. Thanks for all the looking.

  6. Yeah Gary brave little one it is. I'm glad I watched it as I know by the time I got the camera back up I would have not seen the take off. God it was beautiful. Thanks for looking at the progress and still got 2 to go.

  7. Well thanks Andy and I am glad you and others are enjoying it as much as I do. So many people just want to take a picture and not even wonder what it is or where it came from. I think this forum is very nature minded with things like this as well as getting a nice photo. I enjoy my time here. Thank you for following this progress so far and 2 to go.
