We will be banding the eyasses on Monday morning. At this time we will:

1) Inspect the nest box
2) Remove the puff balls
3) Clean cameras
3) Avoid being bombed by mom & dad overhead
4) Our attention will then turn to the eyasses
---Inspect for bugs/parasites
---Take blood samples
---Sex them
---Attach bands
---Show & tell
5) Return the eyasses to nest box

We plan to have the stream up but we will be working on the WiFi location to improve our feed.

Nora and Amy, thanks so much for the banding photos; they are wonderful!  Amazing how they look so large compared to in the box.  Tail and wingtip detail is great!

OOPS! -  BYE BYE
June 10, 2024
Mark tried to hop up on top and missed.
He'll be fine - he's very ready

Bcaw note-
We will be getting access back for the behind camera so we will check there. LeAnn is on the right, Mark is the little dude that fell, he'd been jumping around the box all weekend.
