    Today was the first time that I've seen a carcass of a Blackbird? left for the chicks to demolish without assistance.

    I'm tipping flight is imminent, fledged and confidence building....

    Oooh yes, they're close to the edge now... all three just standing there looking over the edge... gotta launch soon!
    If only we could get 'footage' of the maidens, that'd be a blast.

    Yeah! It's got me as well. I am finding I " need" to login a couple of times a day to see if the birds have flown.

    I have a thing for birds and having "raised" quite a few sets of Sunbirds nesting outside my laundry window , the first flight thing attracts me.

    Default It's addictive for sure.

    I've flown aerobatic RC slope soarers for many years. To be good at it, the concentration is so intense that you're not standing on a hilltop with a transmitter in your hands, you're actually in the air flying like a bird, riding the air like surfing a wave. And dog-fighting with wedgies is pretty fun, but a bit hairy!

    Watch out, they're close now. One of them is flying - not off, but up and down the parapet.
