Title: Request for Quest Pictures
Post by: Shaky on 29-Apr-11, 12:12:14 am
It would be nice to collect all the pictures of Quest before she arrived in Toronto and save them in one location so her fans can easily find them. If you have any pictures, please post them here. Later we can put them in an album or a nice slide show complete with soundtrack that we can present to the folks in Canada.

Are you saying from birth or after she fledged?

...all the pictures of Quest before she arrived in Toronto...

Pictures of M&K courting and brooding in 2008 would be nice too.

Quest is the eyas in the middle with the blue tape on her band.  You can make out a bit of the magenta colored vest that held her transmitter in place. - Carol P.

Yes, that could be done although the original intent was to put together a sort of photo biography of Quest for her new fans in Canada.

Now I understand  and I hope the new fans in Canada are adoring our Quest.  But I do hope that for those of us who have followed her since her hatching in 2008 and all her adventures for the past three years that we get to see the  "happily ever after"  of her hatchlings in Don Mills.

Of that, I have no doubt...especially with this group of watchers!    I know our Quest and her young will be cared for and documented for their life times.

Thanks for posting these, Kris.  I don't think I've seen them before.  Maybe one of them?
Gorgeous pictures of Quest only a few months after she had been hatched.   If these were taken in August of 2008, she was only three or four  months old at the time.   Special pictures.

I thought they were beautiful and had saved the site but forgot to post them earlier.  He had contacted the DEC in 2008 when he discovered her and and Barbara Loucks forwarded the info and pics to here for posting.  I did contact him later on to see if he ever had any further sightings of her but he never did.
