Thread subject: Lean and mean?
Name Date Message
Shelley 07/19/04 10:08 am Is it just me or do they look leaner today? I wonder if they are now totally expected to get their own food. I think I read that someone (Mickey?) thought he saw one of the chicks land yesterday, looking a bit wet, as if it had been fishing. I also have't seen Betty or Dennis in awhile, I don't think...I'm losing track of the timing here. Someone please correct me if I'm forgetting (duh, it's been known to happen once or twice, lol!)
Marie 07/19/04 04:54 pm I am not sure if the use of those Breast Muscles for flight and all that wing motion hasn't help trim the birds a little. Perhaps it has put the SHAPE where it should be. Hanging around in a nest sleeping, eating, and lounging for eight weeks must have put a little FAT on all, if not one particular chick...and we all know who she is!
Tiger 07/19/04 06:13 pm I cannot think that the chicks are trying to fish already. However I have no idea before they learn to fish.

Does anyone know?

BTW there is a report of the female at the Lake District site going fishing for herself!

Did we not think that Betty was doing the same?
