Screenshots from Feb 11, Feb 15 and Feb 20.  I could not find exactly the same pose to compare with that from today.  The videos are perhaps more instructional.

Additional screencaptures and videos have been posted in the "regular" Sidney nest discussion topic and are not repeated here.

On February 24, HWF announced they would attempt to capture, treat and band Pa Sidney, hopefully on Monday February 28.

On Feb 25, daved, a photographer at Sidney, took additional photos from the ground. Daved's photos start here:  http://www.hancockwildlife.org/forum/viewtopic.php?topic=154525#154525


I have cropped and slightly enhanced the contrast and lighting on a couple of his photos.

I tried a different method of enlarging Daved's photos from the Sidney forum today.

Dear Gentle Posters:  We would like to reserve this thread for pictures and videos, for fast evaluation of Pa Sidney's issue. 

Please post general comments in the "regular" Sidney nest discussion topic:  http://www.ournaturezone.com/index.php?topic=127.0

Thank You!

He left the nest around 12:26 PM (nest time).  The resolution isn't good, but I don't see any change.

He can't reach his neck feathers to preen, so they will stay that way until the next molt in this neck area.

There seems to be a dark spot under Ma Sid's right eye. It first appeared late morning, March 4

-


The next day (March 5), her eye looked better in the morning.




but darker again a bit later on

Daved visited the Sidney nest on Saturday, March 12 and took several photos of Pa Sidney. He posted 15 pictures on the HWF forum (his posts start here: Pictures by daved).

These pictures are (1) cropped original and (2) enlargements and-or contrast enhancements of a few of his pictures.

This one is #3 in his series (original and then enhanced).

A screencapture of Pa from October 2010 shows the white areas on his legs, similar areas are also visible in the pictures from March 14.
