I will take care Shep.  Keep an eye out Mon/Tues after the ATF.  I am going to find the biggest balloon I can and hang it out my sunroof when I drive by the cam.  You can be sure that I will have a big smile on my face.

Chance is getting really cute. Loud, too.  Is it Zooey, the parent who delivered food in the pic?

Well Shep, looks like Chance isn't ready to fledge yet but I am.  Couldn't sleep last (too excited) and checked in on Chance several times.  Can't tell if she sleeps standing up but she was always in a vertical position .  I am sure that when I lock the door she will do something exciting.  I am also sure that you will take some pictures of her milestones for me to see.  Don't know if you noticed but one of the chatters yesterday said that Chan was growing so fast she grew a beard. She had a down feather stuck to her beak and it did look like a beard.  Made me chuckle.

Wanted to make sure we had a recent picture. Chance will be taking to the skies any time now.

Little Chance looks drenched and miserable but I am glad to see her.   Drove through some nasty weather in Iowa today.  Several black low lying storm cells east and west of of 52.

Jaspurr,

We must have been traveling that road at the same time today.  It was pretty scary looking!

So, if I were Chance, I'd stay at the nest box at least one more night!

Be safe, travelers.

THE BIG JUMP
7 am  July 15
Chance hop-flaps to outside perch bar.
Thus far I have not seen her out here.
She looks comfy!

I think she's been eyeing mom below for days
Dont sleep on one foot here yet!

Nova had a fight with one of them, then left

Juvie - 02/25 someone on Explore thinks THIS was Zooey

Shep, I agree about rain getting rid of many pesky insects for the birds.
Help me understand your list of dates in your post earlier today: Juvie - 02/25, and so on.
