Liis, thank you so much
for providing the link to Spot's banding for our new (and old) friends to see: I think this is my 3rd viewing, and I'd forgotten about the video. I love watching Joosep's calm and gentle skill, and reading his commentary. It's a wonder that he manages to climb the tree and balance himself at the nest, using and replacing the many pieces of his gear. Spot was so adorable while bravely facing "scary, scary" Joosep! I suppose he could be considered looking very fearful; I prefer to think of his open-mouthed, wing-spread pose as looking brave, and trying to appear fearsome
!! I will always remember being unprepared (having not remembered the scheduled day) for sitting down at my computer last year and seeing Joosep's head (or I think it was Renno!
) right there at Sulli and Kluti's nest, seemingly out-of-the-blue...I was truly stunned to find him there
. And then he left something behind that day (his notebook maybe?), and had to climb back up
. Kluti and Sulli were pretty docile, which surprised me, but it did seem to take forever for Linda to come back to them; it took many slightly worrisome hours for her to appear. I hope so very much that we will be able to watch the new WTE kids (they probably won't be babies any longer
) get ringed, which I think would be scheduled pretty soon. OH DEAR. Fingers crossed for next week's potential cam miracle. It is almost next week!
I so enjoyed seeing the interesting film, as well...thank you again for posting these things.
