Grace 06/25/04 11:04 am We seem to have gone from #1, 2 and 3 to names. Who is who? And I note that "CZ" is referred to as "he". At this time, can we distinguish between the males and females? Loved the antics this morning with the gold fish piece.
Nancy L 06/25/04 12:35 pm Grace, please refer to "let's name them now" below on the Message board.
Grace 06/25/04 02:59 pm OK- I think you decided as follows (that was a long thread!)
#1=Chickzilla
#2=peace
#3=Spirit
But still....how do we know that CZ is a "he"?Can you tell the difference between the sexes?
Shelley 06/25/04 03:25 pm Grace, we don't know and can never really know for sure, since these osprey are not banded or in any way come in contact with humans. But the general concensus is that adult females tend to be a bit larger than the males. In the chicks, it is truly impossible to tell. I think we are using *he* more as a generic way of referring to them but some of us have made guesses as to their gender based on personality traits we see emerging as they grow and develop. And for our own amusement, of course.

We're a bunch who are easily amused...;-)
Celeste 06/25/04 03:46 pm Takes so little to make us happy and amused! A nest filled with chicks, what more could we want!
Grace 06/25/04 05:08 pm Amusing they are. Especially now that they are trying to grow up. Reminds me of my own teen-aged daughter who at times acts like CZ. That's why I wondered about the gender. (LOL)
