Indie's First Flight 06 November
In the early evening, we watched as Indie took up its usual position on the pillar behind the nest pot plant. Teeny snoozed in the nest. Jelani stood on one leg by the braai/BBQ area. We went inside to fetch something. We were gone for not even 2 minutes, and when we returned, Indie was no-where to be found. Teeny sat calmly in the pot plant, waiting for food. By PPO's movements, we found Indie standing on the neighbour's balcony pillar - the same flight distance as Jelani's first flight. A tremendous feat! Jelani stayed right by the braai area on the patio. I almost got hit on the head by PPO for being in the garden - a warning to keep away. We fell asleep with the chicks in 3 different areas.
