I did try going to the laundromat and their changer is out of order and the one at the car wash didn't take the kind of paper money I had, so will do them tomorrow.  At least they're all loaded in the vehicle.  Grabbed more packing boxes out the recycle place and will pack more this afternoon along with checking in on out GSB crew.

Cute! 

Poor Newman came and she put her head down and screeched and he left.  After that she messed with the RWB and tried giving the little one the whole bird again, then tried giving it to that egg.

Thanks Lori.  I think "mama mode" has really kicked in.  Newman was looking like "oh man, here she comes" and he wasted no time in leaving for her this time.  :D

Wow.  Zooey abruptly left and Newman went in to check on things and take a turn after looking good for her.
"She LEFT???"


The next thing you know she came back with an itty bitty piece of meat, proceeded to eat it, checked around the nest box, and got back on the eggs/hatchling.

i'm wondering if that is the first egg.  Zooey has been leaving it out and when Newman checked in he looked it over and left it out also.

So about 2005 Zooey left.  Newman came to check on things and took over keeping the hatchling and egg warm.




Zooey came back after a few minutes with a nicely dressed meal...


She doesn't seem to understand what she's supposed to do.  She ate part of it.  Then she finally was a hair closer and held a piece out while the little one stretched up with its mouth open, but didn't reach down to it and continued eating.  She finally took it to the corner and ate a little more before settling down on the hatchling and egg again.








NEWMAN IF YOU CAN HEAR ME GO IN THERE AND FEED THE POOR LITTLE HUNGRY CHICK!!!!!!!

It must have been around 7 AM when Zooey took off from the nest box and Newman took over.  About 5 minutes later she came back and he left...


She actually brought the prey closer to the baby and it got one bite before she took it to the corner.
