||I enlarged RealPlayer and of course, Betty has had her head in the way a great deal of the time, but does it look like #1 is starting with the pin feathers already? The feather texture is starting to look much different from #2

||I just received a copy of Carpenteri's "The Fish Hwak Osprey" today , & read it from cover to cover. In it he states that feathers start repacing down at about 2 weeks of age, so the pin feathers are pretty close to "on target".
