Thread subject: How sure are you that?
Name Date Message
Mickey 07/12/04 11:50 am After watching the feeding of the goldfish and Betty being pecked away by the feeding chick how sure are you all that it was Peace who fledged? After the goldfish arrived the last chick who flew into the nest was the chick who ate the whole fish and pecked betty. These are CZ traits not Peaces. So my question is how sure are you all that it is Peace who fledged?
Celeste 07/12/04 12:45 pm I "hear" what you are saying and here is where I wish the DPOF would verify info for us. This morning CZ was sitting on the favorite branch she likes to sit on, and Peace was flapping away. I have been noticing this behavior early am for a few days. Tiger's last post was of Peace flapping Sunday pm and noting that he would fledge today also. For a few days now Peace has been flapping much more than CZ and making more and higher airlifts than CZ. The same was happening this morning also. CZ barely tried, and as we have seen in recent days Peace has been practicing more than CZ with better successes. Who knows until DPOF verifies, and then who knows maybe it is something about flying that changes the chick, like Spirit's behavior changed after he fledged. DPOF, where are you?
Cecilia 07/12/04 12:51 pm What made you change your mind that it was Peace and not Spirit that flew into the nest and grabbed the fish? I watched that event too and I thought I saw Spirit's all white chest as he dragged the fish around to eat. And I thought it was Peace who flew away after Dennis beat his hasty retreat...
Tiger 07/12/04 02:45 pm After I wrote that it was Peace that was hovering last night a doubt did develop in my mind that it was not Peace. I was tempted to report the doubt but I could not be sure.

Shelley 07/12/04 02:50 pm My reasoning was, admittedly, based more on the pigging-out behaviour I saw this morning than on anything else. It is a familiar scene to see CZ eating and lounging while the others are busy flapping and practising. Since I did not actually witness the second fledge, I only went on the reports and observations, but what I saw in my own observations this morning served to confirm in my mind that CZ was the *first in, last out* of the nest, so to speak.

Shelley 07/12/04 02:54 pm Oops! Sorry, I don't know how THAT happened, I don't think I hit it twice....
Mickey 07/12/04 03:27 pm Cecilia......It was either CZ or Peace who ate the goldfish. The necklace was very pronounced.Im just not sold on it being Peace who fledged yet. With these 2 chicks Im not sure we`ll ever be certain like we can be with Spirit.After watching all 3 eating today, they all can rip fish.So I cant even use that as a distinction anymore.
