With the hustle and bustle of Tuesday [30 patients were admitted!], we didn't get a chance to post the results of the weekly weigh-in.
Here they are:
#11-0474: NZ: 3.98 kg (last week was 4.17 kg)
#11-0475: NX: 4.26 kg (last week was 4.28 kg)
#11-0476: NV: 3.42 kg (last week was 3.51 kg)
This makes sense, given that NV and NZ have been very active lately -- while NX has been a little slower to leave the nest. Also, this weigh-in was done first thing in the morning -- before the eaglets had breakfast.
The report at morning rounds was that NZ was incredibly feisty this morning when she was caught up for her medications. She did just fine inside overnight. NV and NX also did just fine in their new temporary quarters for the night -- both were active and perching earlier this morning. Four guys from Kjellstrom & Lee [Staunton branch] came to the WCV this morning to look at the eaglets' future flight pen and get a feel for the layout of the Center. They'll be mobilizing the troops and gathering up their needed equipment -- we should hear from them later today on their schedule for the remainder of the week. At least four employees will be on the job - -and remember, they are donating their time. We're extremely grateful for their expertise and work in this important renovation project! In the meantime, for your eaglet fix: NX and NV in their temporary enclosure.
Great news -- the crew from Kjellstrom & Lee [Staunton branch] will be out tomorrow morning to start work on the eaglets' future flight pen! They've rearranged their schedule so that they can get to work right away. We'll have more updates tomorrow, as they're happening.
