4, almost ready to leave the nest

Postby greybeard » Tue May 16, 2017 6:55 pm

And I am glad. Little critters are hiking their butts up on the side and pooping all over my porch deck. Parents come swooping in at breakneck speed with their lunch. I dunno how the offspring know parent is coming, but they start squawking just a couple seconds before arrival. Tried to get a good pic of momma/papa feeding them but that takes less time than my camera can focus, but I did barely get one of her leaving. I had a game cam set up this morning, but the pics didn't show much. It's minimum delay is 2 seconds and feeding is over by that time. They'll build in the same place next year or use the same nest, but I'll probably wash it down with the powerwasher and make them build elsewhere.

I let a pair have a nest in the garage over my boat a few years ago. Seemed fine until the chicks built up a pile of crap on the boat over an inch deep.

We had a nest on the motion light. Right on top of the bulb. It would smoke if you turned the light on so I diconnected the power to it. Next year she built it on the other light.
