GSB Home of Newman & Zooey and egg

Zooey comes back from break & Newman won't move off the egg from nest duty...

Seriously Newman?


17 minutes later...

Zooey, "Whatever, I'm outta here"...
Newman, "My turn"... wait... did she really just leave?"

 :D Loved that Lori with Newman and egg duty!!  She needs to learn how Mariah did it out in Rochester, NY one time with Kaver.  She kept moving closer and finally started to slowly work a foot under the eggs and him before he literally got pushed out as she kept moving over.

May 25, 2021 barge report
Missed some barges due to this is a bird cam!  🤣
3 am  a bright spotlight floated downriver
4.30 am a boat all lit up sat on the river in front of the cam - tug? not a barge
11.45 am  12 car barge coming downriver
3.30 pm 12 car barge downriver

May 26 barges
Our Coast Guard does patrol the river.  😉

3.30 am  a tugboat? came and sat on cam over 90 minutes
Pitch black, only see lights on the water - like ghosts
4.40 am shadow light -  that *tugboat could be a police boat  / coast guard - its STILL here, very close to shore, almost parked in the trees!
Up in the river-lake is another bright light, its been there, barge?  dunno.

4:50 am  seems its a barge, and now it moving our way - way up there
The falcon's on the stick perch watching and screaming - supervising orders no doubt 😉
5 am  Falcon chased that tug off her shore into the river - to meet the barge coming downriver

5.15 am 12 car  barge passing going downriver, falcon screams

If GSB eggs hatch we wont see much of the barges

That sounds about right.  They took good care of eggs 2 & 3, so there is hope for those. :)

Great Spirit Bluffs visitor today...
Who are you???  She is just being annoying to Zooey, no harm done.


Trying to figure out this visitor situation today... I have recorded it and got the band colors, trying to zoom in any numbers or letters... anybody see anything? I will post pics later... Same colors as Amhran possibly.  It kind of looks purple...[/b]  ;) ;) ;)

I will further investigate to see if it's Amhran... whoever you are stop bugging Zooey! ;)

I found this one from this afternoon and Zooey was NOT happy when this one showed up.


I'm assuming this is Newman on the bluff.......

What a goofball.  Newman went in and got settled on the eggs.  Zooey came in and told him off, he ignored her, and she left.  :D
