Mum then flew to the Babysitting Tree where she was calling out to someone passing by.

In this video, someone is pressure washing in the distance.
You hear a happy Robin, then a Crow, then a Towhee & a Flicker!

This was during our annual Blues Festival week.
If you turn up your sound, you can hear someone practicing nearby, probably outside, it was such a nice day.

You can hear more blues in this video!
Dad gets up from the Nest & takes off to our left, only to land on the Prow again.
Did he go get food?
After a bit he fleaps up to the close up cam box, then flies off again.
Listen for his trill once he lands!
After the noisy vehicle drives by, watch Mum*s body language.
She is eyeing the Nest for where to land when she jumps down.
You can HEAR her hitting the top of the close up cam box when she lands!
From there she fleaps to the Prow, then climbs down into the Nest to join Alexandra & David.

Okay, going back a looooooong way!
It is raining, i am caught up on my current fotos, & i am tidying up undone albums that i never got to finish.
Found some nice things to share.
How nice is it to see these two again, together, in The Peters* Tree before the beautiful perch branch broke off!  :hearts2

Mum & Dad were together like that on The Peters* Tree, but then Mum spotted something & blasted off.

june 21 2011 10:30 - Mum on the stump Alexandra in the Nest





At this time of year, all the Trees are leafed out, & there is only a tiny window through which you can see the Nest.
It doesn*t help that it is a windy day!
Doesn*t stop Mum from keeping an eye on me, though.
