Omaha
June 3
2 have been resting their heads on the bar
This morning they mounted the bar with both feet - perched
Mom encouraged their adventure when she came to feed -
the lil adventurers got first bites  ;D

O look - its the Michelin man's family! haha
They look dangerous!

Any day they'll be running along that walkway

JABBA the HUT
Omaha  June 4, 2021
They look so tough!  So big and aggressive!
BIG fluffy pantaloons, biceps like a wrestler   8)
The fat girls are sitting side saddle!  :D

For all their huge size, these 4 are gentle, not aggressive - too fat maybe

Each day this chick gets a LEETLE BIT further out of the house

Im not a Star Wars fan, but when I saw this big blob ........  ;D

Omaha  June 4, 2021

 - then there'll be no stopping them!

Omaha
June 6, 2021
I think there is an eagle in the ancestry here!
The chick who longs to go RIGHT is a giant!

7.45 am  The parent flew by it - whether to warn it DONT JUMP or encourage it to jump I dont know.  There is a catwalk they can - and will - run on.

BAND A-52 male is the giant explorer
Another male wants to expand too.
If they dont step off the box today I will be surprised

Both parents have a close eye on them

CATWALK

June 9, 2021  Omaha

One took the low road cam LEFT
Caught one on the catwalk grate to our left
Is that called - grating - form of branchng?   8)

He had a struggle getting back UP - glad there's no gap or he'd be down below
The BIG one cam RIGHT jumped down on that catwalk -
I saw him jump - just his tail on cam hahaha

FAMILY PIC
June 10, 2021  Omaha
I was super blessed - mom dad (up on rail) all 4 kids
So far these kids are gentle, nice Mom here

7.20 am  A 53 jumped down on that catwalk -  cam RIGHT
 - followed by A 51 who went down cam LEFT
   Female A 64 tried to follow A 53 but chickened out

My guess is male A 51 is youngest - he shows no interest in exiting box

Evening all 4 seen - note one on grate far left.   ;D
One is so HUGE she looks like 2 or 3 birds!!   ???

June 12  Omaha
Look how brown they are
They go off the side to that catwalk
Very healthy fresh air for them  :)

2 males prefer the LEFT catwalk, 1 prefers the RIGHT
Sounds like my family!

It was funny to see one of them return to the box from the left,
then Mom came to feed the one out on the grate - so he went back out for food!   :)
There are so many perchs here for the kids to play on - should be fun to watch now

This is such a fun stage!
2 of the males went off cam left before 6 am
They went a-runnin almost around the bend
By 7 am they'd found each a separate station to look over the city
 - not perched up yet - but on alert ... soooo cute

One is so sleek now - only a bit of down

June 15, 2021  Omaha evening
This box is a pigpen!
The kids spent the day on the catwalk - cam right
One by one they wander back to the house late evening
Now its an easy confident jump down and back up

This evening the first one back considered perching out on Mom's perch.
He gave it due consideration, then said -  NOT TODAY

 ;)

WICKED WIND
June 17, 2021 winds 15 mph temp 106
5.30 am  Only 2 juvies left - and one nearly blew away!
He ventured out and went off cam left.
The wind blew him back up so he ran to cam right -
 - he had not intended to go off there but the wind blew him off.  Wow
Only off onto the catwalk thankfully
