WALK7163 Apr 10 2015  10-48-45  New HopeKate and chicks

Kate is bringing in a small fish
both chicks want it – that is Ice to the far left of the nest
now look just in front of Kate’s right talon – that is Wynd’s gaping beak
she got the fish and has learned in the past couple of days how to feed herself
this means Ice has to wait and see if she leaves any scraps
the yellow tinge to the photo is due to a wave of pine pollen

WALK0025 Mar 20 2015  21-24-37 New Hope Petruchio bedding

It started out a foggy morning! Wynd had figured out how to get up on the rim of the nest. Getting back down was expedited by the arrival of Petruchio. Wynd and Ice argued, with Wynd ultimately pushing Ice back into his side of the nest. See Slo-Mo of the argument in the video – link below.
Wynd does a funny Meerkat imitation. Petruchio brings straw for bedding and the chicks are quite disgusted that what dad brought wasn’t edible.

WALK6927 - 2015-03-11 Kate leaving nest

One of the chicks, to the left of the tree limb, watches as mother Kate leaves in a hurry.
The chicks are now sporting a light grey fuzz on top of their heads, a dark brown/black face and body with a pale yellow beak.
