Temps are Hotter

You will notice the chick spread eagle a lot during our warmer temperatures. It was quite warm yesterday ~ we hit the 93. But its back down in the 80's this week and with our DRY air, thats very comfortable. Is it just me, or is this chick growning fast?!

Look at the crop on him! He has no competition for food, that's for sure.

Here is a video of cuddle time with Mom.

It's amazing that the eyaes was small enough to fit in an egg that size just 12 days ago. Super growing baby.

Has anyone noticed the baby today? I've been watching off and on since 7:30 am (June 3rd). He/she seems lethargic, sleeping a lot. Could there be something wrong with the little thing? It is now 1:34 pm and Mom is no where in sight. Hope I am wrong but I am worried.

He is an only child, and they get all the attention, and all the food.
I hope he doesn't turn out to be spoiled....LOL. He was sitting in the corner of the nest early this morning, I was a little worried too, that he is either hot or in trouble with Mom.

So amazing!

I think he's fine. Sometimes after he has just been fed, he will be lethargic. Also when our temps are very warm but it was cooler today. I saw him this evening just sitting in a corner with no parent around. It will be a bit lonely in that nest.

Dad seems to be the one always in trouble with Mom!

Is it unusual to have only one egg hatch? I think he is already spoiled. How do we know he is a he and not a she?

Yes it is slightly unusual but this spring there are many nests across US that have only one. Might be due to cold, wet weather. We don't know the gender yet, but will know when he/she leaves the nest and is likely to be picked up to be returned to the top of the building. They will band and identify then. For now, we use 'he' as a general term.

Some very interesting information & video from the Boise, ID nesting site!
