Season Mostly Over

Well, the 2006 season is mostly over. At this point, no news is good news as the chicks have fledged and are on their way! I wish all of them very good luck. Not to be morbid, but they are sort of going to need it. They have about a 50-50% chance of survival in these first, hard two years.

I’ve been thinking of looking at the database to see what happened to the MCC chicks over the years. As well, I feel I should read about the project in general, so I can answer questions more effectively.

The Chicago birds have an interesting history. I’ve looked up any information I could find on the chicks in their birth biography. Many of the chicks fly off and are never seen again. One hopes that most of them went on to find a mate and breed undetected!
