Thread subject: Something in nest under Betty
Name Date Message
Kathy 04/17/05 06:53 pm I looked in at 6:56PM and there is something under Betty. It has a loop at the end and it was flapping in the wind. Could it be a plastic bag? Did anyone see Dennis or Betty bring it into the nest?
Matt 04/17/05 07:17 pm It looks more like a feather out of place. She just stood up and its sticking out of her.
Kathy 04/17/05 07:21 pm Matt, it does not look like a feather.
Matt 04/17/05 07:28 pm Its not a bag. When she flapped her wings, it was on the side of her body. I saw this last year with Dennis. He had a similar thing. Actually it looks like two feathers are out of place.
Kathy 04/17/05 07:33 pm I looked again and you are right Matt. Guess I'm an alarmist.
Shelley 04/17/05 07:45 pm Kathy, Betty just stood up again now and it looks like a bunch of her back feathers are out of whack. Probably just a bd hair day. She is turned now, facing the 8 o'clock position so it's impossible to see those 2 white ones that were sticking out her right side. But I also think they were just feathers.
RonS 04/17/05 08:23 pm If I remember last year correctly, after tending to the eggs a while, Betty04 lookede very much the worse for the wear. However, Dennis04 was much better at bring her fish and she didn't leave the nest as frequestly nor for as loong a period of time as Betty05. We'll see how the behavior changes as they mature and gain more parenting skills.
