He always watches her feed!! Learning!!

Tuesday May 17

I spent around 3 hrs. at the Duncan Mill nest site today watching the dynamics between the adults and confirming that the chicks were being well fed. When I arrived Quest was at the nest ledge and the chicks were all sleeping in the rear of the nest box. Saying that , one of the chicks walked up to the edge of the nest box much to the surprise of Quest as they are now getting much more mobile. Around half an hour later a male brought in some food.   It was the male I identified yesterday as McKinney with the red tape over his USFW band.  The food was accepted by Quest, taken in and fed to the chicks. He then approached the nest box but didnít go in or on the landing platform.  In fact in the 2 days Iíve watched him he has been everywhere on the nest ledge with the exception of actually going inside the nest box.  He is also closely watched by Quest.  At times I couldnít see her up on the Harlequin building but I could readily hear her vocalizing nearby. After she left the ledge, there was about an hour or so where the chicks were alone.  McKinney dropped in a couple of times and also went over to the Thales building and was seen hunting the valley. I found Quest nearby on the roof of 240 keeping a watchful eye over all his movements.  As I left, Quest was on the nest ledge and McKinney was hunting off the Thales Building.

Despite all of these changes Quest is taking incredible care of the chicks.  They are well fed and looked after as witnessed during my two visits there.  Again there was no sign of Skye in the area but we have put out the word and are keeping an eye out for him.

Whatever else may change at Chez Quest, one thing will never change.

Aren't they the cutest foursome?  Looks like a really big girl on the end.

Is the new male spelled McKinny or McKinney? This looks like him in pic 2 based on size.
