I watch a lot too Skit. Have you clicked on the "Social Stream" on the right? You can continue watching the birds, but also watch chat streaming by of all the other people who are watching.
If you haven't, you'd be surprised of all the loyal watchers and how they keep conversations going.
Some will post "Had to leave for a few hours. Did I miss anything?" And they all will fill the person in on what happened. It's a hoot!
I get a kick out of watching them flap their wings and lift off the nest. They don't know what to do from there, so they just land. I think they call that "Hovering". Then, there's "Branching". I believe that's when the babies will venture out onto a branch then return to the nest. Not exactly sure of that, but only watch the conversations and have decided that's what they're talking about.
It's so close to the end here. I know when the babies leave the nest, they'll turn the cameras off.
Last night, a baby was laying sprawled out with one leg stretched out backward and its right wing extended out to the right. Another baby would flap and run right over him and it wouldn't move.
The camera began to zoom into the one lying down very close to it's face, I suppose to look at the eyes for any indications of illness. Then it scanned down the body and looked closely to the wing. It was kind of tense. Like you said, a baby died in another nest and I never know what I'm looking at when one looks ill.
Just then, Mama returned to the nest with a fish and it jumped up and got right in line for dinner.
What a crackup! It was just lounging I guess.
I'll be sorry to see it end.
