Lots of RAIN moving in
3 am Liz and Garrett zzzzzzzzz on roof, parent on perch on owlguard
Now its 3.20 am and Elizabeth may be alone - she's so big I cant tell for sure.
That may be Travis on guard, with Michelle below with the other (2 or 3)
I am SURE Rusty and Nina are fine. I doubt Mom'd let that owl have Rusty!


Video Garretts partial fledge
GSB people dont like me saying 'partial' *sigh* :eggsad:
http://www.ustream.tv/recorded/64112439 ... ght/635512

Video Garrett's real fledge June 19
http://www.ustream.tv/recorded/64173323 ... 36/pop-out

Nina fledge
http://www.ustream.tv/recorded/64184997 ... 61/pop-out

I am still really surprised Garrett is flying from nestbox down, and back up so easily -
even tho his landings need work! Its FAR down there!
The GSB is posting a lot of error, wrong info, many questions unanswered - and IM banned so cant post there. Not a nice crowd of people.

WHO am I to disagree with you two and all the GSB people who called it accidental.
But I still get my own opinion and she WANTED to be with her brothers and AWAY from BIG sis - who one on GSB SS calls Big Bertha. lol

Lots of RAIN to the west moving in - serious HAIL in SD, kids wont wanna be on that roof!
3.20 Liz and Garrett zzzzzzzzz on roof, parent on perch on owlguard.
That may be Travis on owlguard, with Michelle below with the other (2 or 3)
I am SURE Rusty and Nina are fine. I doubt Mom'd let that owl have Rusty!
Travis is SO cute! He is ALL guy!
4.30 am Travis(?) has moved out to extension, Liz(?) starts whining (calling siblings below?)
5 am Liz begins screaming when parent leaves - probably to feed the 2 down below first - reward the fledges
- Liz needs to lighten up to fledge maybe, she is a BIG gurl
5 am Liz spreads wings as Gar watches
- Clumsy Liz jumps on top of poor faithful Gar who protessssts!
- Liz just has her own flaparama up there .. hop flap hop
5.15 am Ma - if you dont feed me NOW, Ima gonna eat this roof!!! why do they gnaw on the roof??
- Garrett calls his siblings, then waits for them to reply. lol they are probly eating - oh there they go
5.18 - lol - and there goes Garrett down to them hahaha - Liz stomps
- I've been hearing the cardinal chipping very close by - hope they arent eating its young or mate.
5.30 O MY! I hear the full chorus from below! Liz nods - Yeah yeah yeah I hearya, I aint ready
5.34 am LOL!!!!! Major squawking from Liz and Garrett lands on roof - clumsily lol - with Mom who lands on cam top.
Somehow Liz got the food - but I really cant believe Gar would bring it to her - so, what did I just see?
She is holding the food but not eating it. A bit odd.
5.51 Liz finally begins eating it. I almost thot she'd drop it over the side.
6.15 Liz flaps atop cam, having left her prey on rooftop
STOP chewing on that expensive cam!
6.18 am Garrett again joins her on roof - and eats the prey as Liz watches sitting on cam
6.30 Gar finished prey and flew off, leaving Liz on the cam

7 am RAIN begins, I hear thunder. LOUD THUNDER clap scared liz! she screams Mommmmeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!

GSB June 21, 2015 SONday Shepnotes
4.30 am 2 on roof - dont see parent
Sometimes the GSB chat is priceless, gotta share what someone posted at dawn today.
4:38 a.m Probably just light enough to hunt now,
5.05 Color, Hear screeching down below. Bloody corpse on roof.
Female fledge brought her own food to the hutch top. Much screaming from both birds.
Fledge ate it while other unfledged chick watched. No screemng.
----
5.19 am 1 juvie had left, now 2nd juvie flew off - dawn chorus of all 4 below
- HOW can they still be LOUD a few hundered feet down there!?!!
So cute how juvies come n go at nest, seemingly with ease.
I do recall the 2013 juvies also did after awhile.

6.45 am Juvie lands on roof panting. Hard work pumping up top!
6.50 am Juv kakking on roof - WOW! I remember Jonathan kakking in 2013 younger than this one
- It goes INto box - briefly BEHOLD those magnificent WINGS!!

8.40 am Brekky delivered - it looked still alive - cant be sure. I did see UK falcon arrive at nest with live pigeon, poor thing.
I THOUGHT SO!!
GSBDweller posted in chat - Parent brought live bird, Elizabeth made an attempt, but left it there.

9.45 am I hear a juvie a very long way away - answered by the one on the box perch.
Those kids are all the heck over the entire area, my ear tells me! Woo hoo babies!
It is so precious to see Mom perched high over looking her young. Its normal but still sweet.

6 pm I just saw parent buzz nestbox again. That is so cool. I hear even chorus of juvies.

Thats a main highway to Chicago, ditto train line. I think that is Minesota Highway 61

GSB June 22, 2015 Monday Shepnotes
6.30 am A Thunderstorm is on the doorstep

4.30 am 3 juvies on roof, at 4.50 they began singing
5 am One juv left - before IR switched - darn. Guess Mom's feeding Rusty below and he wants some too!
5.02 Parent (Travis?) brings brekky, drops on roof and QUICKLY flees, one juv grabs n mantles
6 am With 2 up top and 2 below, I can hear 4 part harmony - LOL
6.04 all gone - good - I can turn sound back ON. :D
7 am Mom hugs edge watching over 1 juv just below who is clinging to cliff edge.
- Is that where they will weather this storm?
8 am I have the strange feeling this is Rusty - no way to know. I labled pics Rusty anyway
Wet birdie in the rain
LOL - He went inside box outta rain - just adorable!
8.30 am Ustream went off air - some said Decorah was off too
3 pm Somewhere around 3 pm the cam came back but not sound.

---

I never posted my notes yesterday, so here we go! *grin*

So happy you were able to get a picture Carolyn! Thank you for the report Shepherd. My internet was out a lot of the day yesterday because of a horrible storm the night before and I never did get a chance to check on this site. Thank you.

I never cease to marvel at the awesome beauty of this location.

GSB fixed zoom cam late Friday and got sound this morning - but mine has too much buzz to use
