||Thanks Tiger for a good giggle! Always nice to have a laugh! our 2 looklike they might spend the winter here with the little effort they are putting into fledging maybe the extra sticks being brought intoday are to start construction on a roof.

||You are right, what was I thinking?!! But just as long as she keeps them out of the wrong talons, you know how kids are....

||LOL..........the chicks need some breeze/ wind to give them lift.........I would imagine it is too hot there today/this evening and there appears to be NO WIND...Has it been this calm all day?
I believe when you don't know how to really fly you need the right conditions to get you airbourne. Sort of to give you confidence that you can stay aloft. I suspect that only the adults here know how to get off the ground in no wind conditions 'cos they have confidence and know that they can fly in any conditions.
Just my opinion........ ;-)
