CHANCE
June 12 from RRP explore
Chance had a serious hippoboscid infestation.
These flies take a blood meal by biting into flesh and lapping up the blood that wells into the wound.

We began to suspect we had an infestation when *Chance's wingpits turned black (hippoboscid excrement and dried blood, gross) and it kept falling over. We treated the infestation, knock on wood and cross your talons.

Chance was extremely stressed and sick, but today's behavior and improved health gives us hope.

*Not chick's official name - yet ...

GSB Great Spirit Bluffs Home of Newman & Zooey & little one...

I mentioned Zooey in my last post, she is the Mom at GSB Falcon Cam.  Today there was a fly over by Blue Angels and in the first pic Miss Zooey is telling those "big birds in the sky" to go away!  As you can see it's quiet now and Zooey and little Eyass are in front of the fan ready for nap time!

shep - Thanks for the post from RRP on Explore.  I had no idea the lil one was sick.  I thought it was doing great. 

Lori - AWESOME gifs, as always, thank you! 

Ms. Zooey does look she is telling them planes to go away!   ;D

Yeah that female used words I have NEVER heard a bird use before!
WHHHHHHHOOOOOOOOO eeeeeeeeeeeee!
She did NOT like the U.S. Navy Blue Angels at all.
But many humans loved the splended air show they put on!
That is very dangerous work and takes discipline and precision.
Our fine military on display!   :D

Thanks so much for the posts.  Haven't been in forum for awhile.  Nice to see eyass is doing better.  Zooey is figuring it out. Fingers crossed! :)

I assumed Explore people were calling it Chance.
Good name for it.
RRP post looks like they went down to clean up the chick - but I saw nothing about that

bev on bcaw has watched closely and saw nothing wrong with the chick

With all we're doing I haven't had much opportunity to watch.  When I had been watching him, he did seem rather weak.

This little one seems to be thriving.  Good for you, Zooey.

Is there any protection against owl predation at the nest box this year?

I haven't heard anything about the owls.  Maybe they moved or are leaving them alone.
