  1. Are you out on a limb??? They did it all three are out there today. (5 photos)

    1 Empty nest




  2. I was so glad to see this this morning I could not believe all three were out there. Remember there is a big difference in their birth as there were 4 originally so almost 10 to 11 days different. YEAAAAA for all you little jerks now don't do anything stupid.

    Wonderful Series Lou are they on there own now?
  7. Way to go Lou

    All too soon now you will lose them.
  8. Thanks Gale, Well I think they will be just fine now. I know they can feed themselves and I am pretty sure I am not seeing the parents because both are busy hunting to keep them fed. I hear their cry regular and have seen one at a time come and drop food in the nest and go and that is the reason I believe both parents are OK just busy hunting. I feel this will be a good nesting.
  9. Thanks Lil but really no it's not hard but it is a fine moment if your into raptors to see a young one fledge and make that first flight no matter what the species. They will go soon but not just yet.
  10. Hi Andy, Well they are right on the same time schedual as the 3 from last year from this nest. They all had their first flights by the first week in July. I have a yearly history on my web under the link Red Shoulder nesting. This is their 5th. year. Thanks for the look.
  11. Hi Tony, Thanks for looking, no not yet as they need some little better flight feathers but I would say maybe 2 weeks and they will be feeling the joy of flight.
  12. Thanks Gary I am going with 2 more weeks to air time for all.
  13. Great documentation Lou, enjoyed watching them along with you. I guess congratulations are in order too! LOL- least you don't have to send them to college!
  14. Thanks Tom but the congrats go to Mom & Pop so I'll send them a big Ke-Ah Ke-Ah Ke-Ah. from you. College for these guys/gals is getting air under those wings:biggrin:
  15. Great news! Thanks for the whole series, Lou. Truly enjoyable.
  16. Thanks Ray. Today was even better
  17. Hey Phil I'm not done look at what they did today. Thanks for looking.
