On checking the box yesterday it was noticed that a clever projectile poo aim from the chick had covered the viewing hole. No attempts to get mum to fly off for a minute or so (to get in and clean the window) could be made and so the window stays “painted” for now!
Great shots though of mum and chick in very close contact today. Click on the pics to the right under the “Picture Gallery” heading for a larger version of the most recent photos.
The anticipated disturbances from contractors didn’t eventuate and the nest can remain quiet and rested. The chick is putting weight and size on very quickly now and appears to be very healthy. Some reports state that they double their weight every day for the first short while.
