9 December 2022
It is hard to believe it is December for some reason. I am officially back on Canadian soil but not home yet. Lots of people traveling. If you are heading out over the holidays make sure that you allow plenty of time for everything to go wrong and then smile when it doesn’t!
Gosh, and we have a hatch at Superbeaks in Florida that is getting its first feeding! Congratulations to Muhlady and Pepe!
One of my most favourite birds in the world is Wisdom who is now 71 years old. Can you believe this? The oldest Laysan Albatross in the world!
Can we even begin to imagine what she has experienced? Here is the latest news on Wisdom:
I am so grateful that ‘H’ kept me informed about Rita. Rita is angry and that means she is doing alright. Of course she wants to be with Ron at her nest and time will only tell if that is possible. She is now eating small mammals and they are trying to get the end of the wing tip to heal. What a great time. They are working so hard for Miami’s most famous female eagle, Rita.
Here is the announcement:
Elain’s wonder montages of the comings and goings at the Peregrine Falcon scrape at Orange, Australia keeps us up to date on Xavier, Diamond, and Indigo – who is just doing amazingly well.
Samson has now been missing for 2 weeks. V2 and Gabby have mated but V2 did not return to the nest last evening and has not been seen this morning. What does this mean for Gabby?
This is just a quick check this Saturday morning from Toronto’s Lester Pierson airport. Keep all of the birds and their nests in your thoughts. Send positive wishes out to Rita who is working hard to get well and get out in the wind, flying free.
Thank you for being with me this morning. I will have a more comprehensive look at what is happening tomorrow. Take care everyone. See you soon.
Thank you to the following whose videos and postings made up my screen captures this morning: Bald Eagles Live Nest Cams and News, Elain and the Charles Sturt Falcon Cam Project and Cilla Kinross, Ron Magill and the Miami Zoo Vet Team, NEFL-AEF, US Fish and Wildlife Service Pacific Region, and Superbeaks Nest Florida. Thanks, ‘H’ for the heads up on Rita! Much appreciated.
