Oliver & Olivia – June 2010
Photos from the month of June show amazing growth with the two chicks. Their curiosity of the outside world increased quickly with the growth, now being able to see out and around from their nest. Oliver continued with nest maintenance and dinner deliveries while Olivia maintained feedings and nest protection. By the middle of June, wing stretching became the norm while the chicks tried to balance their awkwardness. In addition, they began learning to preen as their pin feathers grew out and replaced their down. By the end of the June, it is evident the chicks have changed in size and look and are almost ready for their first flight!
