Thread subject: First Fledge Gestimates

||Has anyone made any first fledge gestimates yet??
Well my guess is going to be for 17th July.
My reasoning goes something like this. This nest is about 7 days behind last year's nest. Also I feel that Brooke and Haven are likely to be a bit more like a Cz than a Spirit so that is how I have gone for the date I have chosen.

||I'm going out on a limb & guessing July 6th.

||Let's see - they have just finished 5 weeks, right? I agree that they will need another 4 weeks of getting toned up - goodness knows they won't be lacking in the bulkking up department. I agree that will be the week, but I'll pick the 19th.

||I'm still sticking to my guess of July 11th.
||06/19/05 10:47 pm
||And I will guess the July 16th. for Brook and 18th for Haven

||July 19 th and July 21st......(hmmm, last year Spirit went first....maybe cause he was "lighter"?)....sooo, Haven first and then Brook, (a la CZ):))

||I think they were 4 weeks old on 21 and 23/6, so I will go by the text book and say 10 weeks, ie 28th and 30th July.

||Brook has been testing her wings more than Haven so I think she will be first and here is my wild guess because I can't work it out academically - 18th July for Brook :))

||Anne first chick hatched on 19th May and second on 21st May.

||I'll be selfish and guess July 9th only so that the folks at the "gathering" can get first hand photos of the fledge. ;-)
