The swifts continue to do well, although the wry-necked one did require euthanasia, so there are six left. The older clutch, the most recent intakes, are actually pretty close to heading for the flight pen; the younger two, the first two to come in, are about a week behind them, I think.
Below are two short clips of the swifts hungry and fed.
Aside from feather damage from being caged and total lack of flight conditioning, the thrasher was in pretty decent shape, all things considered. His erstwhile captor had provided a wide variety of food for him, and most of that food was fairly species-appropriate. He’s actually doing better than expected in terms of wilding up but the flight muscles will take some time to build up.
