It’s been really quiet today since Diamond left the box at just past 6 am and there long absences yesterday, too. Marragaay was last heard yesterday afternoon and the day before was spotted chasing poor old Xavier around, but no sight or sound since. Does this mean the parents have escorted her away from their territory? Time will tell. It’s almost the evening ‘screech around the tower’ time, so will let you know if that happens tonight.
I have another video of Marragaay on the ledge, screeching her head off, after displacing Diamond (on evening of 16th).
I hope you are enjoying the Youtubes. Scott has done a fantastic job on this – the images are great and having the function of 4 hours playback is extremely useful for me. It’s also much easier to make snapshots and videos (of lesser quality, however). There’s quite a bit of chat on this site, but I’m not sure how much time I’ll have to make comments.
I’m off to catch some music at the Sydney Festival this weekend. I’ll have my trusty laptop with me, so I can take advantage of the hotel’s wifi and keep recording (having cleared the computer of all extraneous material to make room for these huge files), but of necessity I’ll have some gaps when I’m travelling back, so any observations between about 9 am and 2 pm on Monday would be most welcome.
