    Are you ok Pam, or did you get smothered?

    CC did you ever see that video of the cat that chased a laser light right up the wall to the ceiling? Hilarious. Good claws on that cat.

    The peregrine pups as sound asleep, beaks under wing. Ace, I like doves (which some people call pigeons but which a really doves) too. :) I've been photographing a mother and egg under the dock in Langley. Have to hold my arm under there and shoot blind. Did it yesterday and TWO EGGS were there. Happiness.

    Keeper of the hens

    I like pidgeons and doves. There was a pigeon in town that had both its legs ripped off - we think it had landed on a roof where they had just put up pigeon-wire, and when it had tried to fly off it's legs had been pulled off. They hadn't healed yet but it was managing just fine. It was walking on it's wing tips, i kid you not.

    Diane, i saw that pic that you posted somewhere, it was good and i liked it even more because it's kind of 'hidden'

    LOL - Kate there's a version of that in food warehousing: FIFO - First In, First Out. Just the opposite with birdies then, eh? LIFO

    Red I have another photo to post - with two eggs. Which, I guess everyone could just picture. :) Two little white eggs, on straw, under the dock. I can hardly wait to get a chick photo! That pigeon you talked about is inspirational.

    Well - I haven't seen the peregrine cam yet today. I guess a lot has changed.

    Keeper of the hens

    We studied American Civil Rights in the period 1865 - 1980. It was split into three different sections:

    1. African-Americans and their plight for equality
    2. Trade Unions and the development of Labour Rights
    3. and The Melting Pot - discrimination suffered by Native Americans, Hispanic Americans and African-Americans. You got a comparison essay between the groups, eg. who was discriminated against most, Native Americans or Hispanic Americans?

    It's an interesting subject (although i'm sure i just managed to send you to sleep :P ) but there's a lot of information to fit into a 45 minute essay...

    Nothing about the women's rights movement also occurring in that time frame Red?

    I'll post the egg pics - I think a neighboring bird is in one shot. So you can see the type. Although it was orange and white instead of the usual gray with iridescent trim.

    Ha ha you are funny CC, do have a look at the site it is real good. The babies are just soo ugly they are cute. Both parents came to the nest. Father Eagle brought another fish with it, and Mother Eagle div'ied it up. The chicks are all sleeping now they have been fed

    Its making me a bit seasick all that swaying around. And I'm terrified one of those babies is going to fall out! Wish mom and dad would get back and make 'em sit down.

    Woo hoo!!! A baby just did runny poo just for you Diane!!!

    Thank you for putting it on the "look but don't leave" page. I did add it to my favourites but I can use it from here now. They are such ungainly babies and it doesn't seem possible they grow into such beautiful and gracefull birds. Again many thanks for the link Ronald

    The eaglets are growing fast now. They are acquiring their adolescent blood fathers (the dark fathers) and standing and stretching their wings. They are leaning to mimic the adult parents by pecking at the fish brought to the nest. In another week or so they should be standing on the edge of the nest flapping their wing to prepare for flight. Interesting to see how the male and female react to each other when they are both at the nest. The male is smaller in size then the female. When the male returns to the nest with a fish or branch for the nest the female puts her head down as in a defensive stances and has pecked at the male.

    I have noticed they are stronger in just the short time I have been watching them Ronald. My Hubby always asks me how they are when he comes home from work. I sent the link to my son in Germany, he was very pleased as he loves birds.

    Why thank you Roland that is very kind of you. I will have enough at the moment with the Eagles and our Darby falcon. If I have any more I won't get my jobs done, I will be watching them all day. You must love animals if you are watching all of those. I have a pair of blackbirds come to have a bath every day. I will see if I can get a picture of them they have a real good splash about.

    Wow I just watched the Eaglets being banded, there is a small film clip of it on the site. I am amazed at just how big they are, I truly didn't realise they were that big. Totally awesome. They are starting to stand on their feet more now and I have seen them nibbling on a fish one of the parents just brought in. The parent bird got it started for them and is just watching over them now.

    I saw our falcon leave the nest for a short time today. The eggs all look fine, not long to go now.

    Has anyone checked in to the eaglets lately ? They sure are growing fast. They have started getting up on their feet and walking more. Their wings are huge and they are flexing and stretching them. Don't miss out have alook while we can.

    oh wow I have seen the chicks now there are three all white and fluffy. There is still one as yet unhatched egg. I also saw her feed the chicks. I thought she was shifting about a lot and kept looking under herself, so I checked the blog and yes they were hatched out yesterday.

    Just had a check on the Eagles. My they are growing quickly, Their feathers are changing now they are loosing the baby fluffy down. It must be everso windy there as the nest is swaying so much it is hard to look at with out feeling a tad seasick.

    Thanks Ollie - I was only thinking about them the other day. The weather girl off the news said she was going to be at a cathedral and I immediately thought of the Derby peregrines - but she wasn't and then I forgot to check the link. Fingers crossed they have a successful year.
