Coming Out Party!

Until we were completely sure the movement we were seeing
in the nest hole was indeed a 'baby' we didn't want to report it!
They look so much like the adults that it is hard to know.

Finally after two days of seeing with the eye, the camera was
able to capture the baby too.

I am so thankful that there are 2 of us, 2 cameras, and 2
schedules that allow someone 'on watch' through out the day.
And 2 babies too!

This all happened so fast we would have missed something.

Excitement was running high and cell phones were burning
hot between jane &barbie as we tried to capture every
movement of these babies.
It looked hard for this little 'Rascal' to climb up
to the mouth of the nest hole.

He was diligent though and kept at it.

Wow! That was hard!

Hey! It's a big world out here.
We have no idea what to expect as We have never watched a
Kestrel everything is new and amazing
and a learning experience for sure. We weren't even sure
the babies would appear. But we were ever so glad
the happy event finally came to pass.
When this little guy appeared on the ledge
my friend thought she was watching an adult for the
first few minutes, until she reviewed the pictures.

Watch the movie of the first baby making his debut and please
keep checking back..... One of the babies breaks loose and
adventure to follow...stay tuned.

To God be the Glory ~ Great great great Things He hath Done!

I do visit and I do comment and I was here. I did look at your picture(s) and I did read what you wrote about them. I could say how great you are and how beautiful your work is but alas I would soon run out of things to say on the next blog I visited, so I just left this to prove I stopped and said a few words on Sunday. Perfect pictures of the tiny ones.

My Rheumatoid Arthritis hurts so I am using the same message for all.
