Today was fledging day in Kings Park, during my morning walk:
1.The osprey chick that we have watched since it emerged from its egg in the next in the top of the highest pine tree next to the river wasn’t there today. It’s been there for months, growing at an enormous rate. In my mind I wished it well on its journey:-)
2.The tawny frogmouth wasn’t on it’s nest, like it was last week – see pic. I looked around the tree and there it was on a branch, nestled close to another frogmouth which was smaller and fluffier – the chick has fledged!
What magic gifts!!
