Thread subject: Chick Markings
Name Date Message
Cecilia 07/01/04 09:39 am I've been watching the chicks alone in the nest the last 5 minutes, busy preening and stretching, and since they are all facing in the same direction I can see the patterns on their foreheads. One has two very distinct white stripes (CZ?), one has a slightly messy zig-zaging black stripe (Spirit?) and the last one has a lot more black up near his nose (Peace?). I'm finding it impossible to tell them apart by their size or color anymore. Sometimes CZ's behavior helps me identify her but when they are just hanging out like this I can't tell one from the other. Do any of you use the head markings? Two of them, in the last 15 minutes, have flapped so hard that their feet lifted off a split second (CZ & Peace?) so I won't be surprised if they both fly on the same day like last year.
Cecilia 07/01/04 11:18 am I just watched part of a feeding and now I'm thinking it's CZ with the most black on her forehead, Peace with the double white lines and Spirit with the crooked black mark...:-) It's hopeless!
Mickey 07/01/04 01:25 pm I dont see those markings.The only chick Im positive about is Spirit.Its smaller,thiner when standing up.Up till yesterday CZ was a stronger flapper and more solid on his feet.I havent watched alot today(errands before the holiday)so Im sure thats changed. I think CZ and Peace are gone by the 4th or 5th anyways :)
