2022-23 season's thread
One of the 3 eggs did not hatch. KATE gathered this info for us:
SunnyKate23 Jan 2023 4:24 PMUPDATE
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
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!
Xavier? on the side of the Tower:
20 Nov - No meal brought this morning - but Barru practised on some ??? and had a nice scratch 'n preen:
I didn't find any feeds on the 20th.
Still no juvie in the box up to 07:15 on the 21st.
Latest video from Cilla www.youtube.com/watch Lyn B Cilla cannot be 100% sure which juvenile she is seeing in the field. It seems more likely to be Barru, but nothing can be confirmed.

I spent a couple of days taking photos and making videos of the fledgeling and its parents down at the roost tree. At one time the youngster is in the same tree as its parents and it seems to be slightly larger and with longer toes than its father and smaller than its mother...so whilst I know you crave certainty, I'm still not sure. I do think we have only surviving fledgeling, but I'm just not sure yet which it is.
