Three, sometimes four, of the released juvy red bellies are still sporadically strafing me for handouts. Below is a shot of one of the little beggars.
The female screech is most definitely eating on her own now, so the screeches are now flight pen-ready. They’d’ve been in the flight already, except that in short order after the red tail’s release, it was overrun with three separate wasps’ nests and I had to find a bird-safe wasp spray and then wait 24 hours after each application for it to dry thoroughly. The goal now is to get them in the raptor flight this week.
Meanwhile, they’re pretty much little goofballs.
