Thread subject: Betty is so tired!
Name Date Message
Nancy L 05/06/05 09:24 am This morning (after 9:00) Betty spent so much time resting with her head either between her back feathers or just laying on the nest in front of her. I don't recall the "old" Betty doing that AT ALL! I remember wondering when last year's Betty ever got any rest. Any time I checked her at night, she seemed wide awake & looking around.
Melanie 05/06/05 10:46 am You know these young birds - she must be doing a lot of late night partying when we're alseep ;-p
Cecilia 05/06/05 05:27 pm I've been interested in this behavior too. Yesterday I saw her practically stretched out like a cat with her head on a stick pillow. "Old" Betty never seemed to sleep, even in the middle of the night. I've wondered if it's because this Betty is so inexperienced that she doesn't really realize how much risk there is...like a teenager who thinks nothing can happen to them.
Shelley 05/06/05 06:56 pm Could it also be that she is more tired because she is doing more of her own fishing than Betty 04 did? Just a guess...
