Meet Edward or Edwina...Ed for short..
Yesterday he either fell or was pushed from the the horrible heat of the day it was 110 under the eaves where the nest is...keeping the cement wet I think helped keep him alive and his parents kept him fed. His siblings didn't make it.
Probably another 2 days and he will be able to fly off...right now he can hover low and he keeps up near the wall.

This was the nest and that is the temp from this morning.

It isn't as hot today and yesterday!
I hope nothing eats him...and he learns to fly off...

We hope your day is going well

He is so cute. Thank goodness you are there to help him. I hope all goes well until he's up & off.

Hi, Mary! Glad you are looking after Ed! Apparently, it takes a village to raise a bird! ;-)

110! 110! I think I'm beginning to melt just thinking about it.
If it get's into the high 90's here we curl up and lay low, bird, animals, humans.....110?'s making my hair hurt. :)Bea

Bless you for keeping the concrete wet. It was 110 here today and the heat index was even worse. People thought I was exaggerating. Glad it has cooled a bit in your more northerly neck of the woods.
