Lizzie – Leap of Hope
On Wednesday morning it seemed to be more erergized, flapping its little wings and moving more. Eventually it made a leap up to a ledge that lets some light in, translucently, for the camera to work in daylight. One of the parents brought food but didn’t feed it the first time, seeming to entice it further. On the second entrance the food was given over but soon after the baby made for the escape hole and stayed there for a while.
The parents fed it there once and I rushed to get my camera, went to a room with a view and managed to get a couple of pics before it made the brave move and plunged into the great ‘out there’.
Eventually, they managed to convince it to fly to the front of the garden which it did without any obvious problem.
A good end to their hard work and confined conditions, if not what they may have hoped for.
I haven’t seen them since but trust they are doing well.
