2022-23 season's thread

One of the 3 eggs did not hatch.  KATE gathered this info for us:

3 Jan 2023 4:24 PM

NEWS 29th December 2022 The egg was removed and I 'candled' it with a torch. The egg has a slight leak through a small crack, but is otherwise intact. Despite using a very strong LED torch, I could see nothing, so I think the eggshell is too thick. It may be that the chick simply could not emerge. I'll offer it to the Australian Museum.

Two chicks fledged: Indigo and Rubus, both males. Indigo, the elder, was last seen on 18 March when Diamond blocked his entry to the nest box.  Rubus fledged @ 46 days but died 9 days later, the result of a flying accident.

    I'm so far behind, KATE, that I'm going to have to ask everyone to multiply the previous bonding vid I did by, say, 5, to get the idea Rofl

    Here's (presumably) Barru getting 2 breakfasts, one from each parent, on the 19th.  I'm keeping an eye out for suggestions of Marri but haven't seen anything yet.

    Beautiful cottonwool clouds - there were lots of lovely skies on that day.  A birdie literally darted past, the slomo was very disappointing - 3 still frames!
