swfec Nest notes: E23 is seven weeks old and moving up in the world

M15 and F23 utilize all their valuable instincts and skills to provide for and protect E23. In turn, E23 imprints and absorbs all the lessons that will serve E23 well in the nest and beyond. E23 curiously studies the birds and life outside the nest. E23 stands cautiously close to the edge and bravely peers at the horses below, watching the world go by.

M15 and F23 deliver a diverse menu for E23, who eagerly mantles and grabs the incoming meal. E23 is improving on self-feeding techniques, but swallowing a pelt tail and all may not count. E23 is rarely hungry but has learned to eat when food is available. E23’s stunning growth and beautiful juvenile feathers have resulted from good nutrition.

M15 and F23 stayed in the nest with E23 when the higher winds and rain moved through the area. M15 and F23 observe E23’s impressive wingspan flapping and hopping in the breeze. As E23 gains more wing strength, high hops and hovering will begin. E23 practices grabbing and gripping sticks and things in the nest. These activities will help E23 hit the next target of branching. Hold on, Dad and Momma, new and higher places are on the horizon for E23. Nest Notes by dadsjazz.
