Oh no Shep.  I think it should always be Chance Point.  It has a beautiful ring to it.

LOL, I concede.  I think RRP has enough to worry about (angry mom Zooey air raids) to take any additional CHANCES.  It still has a nice ring to it.

July 23, 2021  dawn
Chance was all over the place yesterday,
but returned home overnite.
First she stopped inside the box briefly
before going to the roof overnite
MUCH nicer up there than inside

I wonder if when RRP banded her if she was larger than usual.
She seems so much bigger than usual

I loved that picture from the other day with Chance on the bluff and tug in the background.  They were all good shots and great she's doing so well.

Chance Point -- I like that too.  :)

SONday July 25, 2021
Where did Chance sleep? First night away from home.
She had supper in the box last nite then left

6 am Chance was found on Chance Point
Did she overnite up there?  I bet she did!
Chance point is right above her nestbox.

Around 6.15 am or so she flew to Chance Cliff
She can watch barges go thru the lock below her

(If only there was a barge in the photo) .. sigh

Went to Guttenberg on my drive out of IA.  Had breakfast at a local diner.  There were a couple of river captains at the diner and they said the Mississippi was very low and that it was dangerous navigating unless you were directly in the channel.  Didn't see any barges or much of anything on the river.   Was looking forward to touring the lock but unfortunately, it  didn't open until 12 and I needed to drive to Pella.   Glad you are still calling it Chance Point,  Thank you for the updates.  Miss Decorah.  Hate it here.

It gets so pretty over towards Guttenberg and along the river jaspurr.  Nice you got to talk to a couple of river captains.

Nora, it is beautiful near Guttenberg.   It was very hazy the morning I left.  Shep, are you still with us?  Miss your updates.
