Another milestone - not just for Thor
As stressful and heart-breaking as November is, as delightful December turns out every year: the chicks are growing in size and some - like Thor and his sibling - are 3/4 the size of his mum here. They move out of the original nest site and find a place to snooze through the day waiting for the other parent to return from fishing with dinner! They are lazy days for the chicks and the attending parent gets a bit of shut-eye then as well - until it is time to head out when the mate has returned. Our chicks are looking like stuffed toys and are just a delight!
