Nest Update July 1, 2013 - FledgeWatch Day 4

Good Evening, Fellow FlapDodgers!!

We are getting close! The kids are warmed up and ready to fly. Both Harmony and Peace are staring off the nest like they want to go see what’s out there! Mom started the day off with a fish delivery at 0845 and 1100. The kids contested for both as usual. Their favorite place in the tree is the cam mount BBC installed for the new cam this year. Thanks BBC! They sat on it most of the day and daydreamed of catching thermals with Mom and Dad. They also practiced wingersizing and Harmony had a great sustained hover towards the end of the day. Peace made a few leaps of her own from nest to branch and back again. In the late evening Mom had a great fly-in  with a bird snack that Razzle made into a blog exclusive video for us!

As darkness fell the kids polished off the snack and settled in for the night.

On to the pics and vids of the day!
