PostSubject: Young birds.   Thu Apr 27, 2017 2:17 am

Seldom out. Weather has not been too good. Why we have 6 wind turbines on the property. Maybe 4 times out for most of them. Some strong on the wing due to age. Banded 40 for myself, 6 with old bands for a guy who wanted them last year. He never showed up. Have 39 of my banded birds. Hawk killed one. Old birds go out open loft most days. More important than young birds. Have found that over the years young birds do not need to be out too early. Lose a few but to be expected. Their first training toss will probably be 10 miles. Then a few twenties then a 40 then stick to that distance then good enough to race. Not on the dark, could not get the required ventilation. But of course, to stop the moult if one wishes there are pills.

Interesting Hal Smile Smile "6 wind turbines". Down here it's something like a mile etc from any property where some one lives to be able to build them etc. Some say "Experts"  Rolling Eyes  Rolling Eyes that they interfere with the human body if living close to them over time in my area.

Knackered. Closest wind turbine is about quarter mile. Wind in the right direction I can hear the steady beat of the turbines. Love it night time! Reminds me of the years on the ships and the engine throbbing a lullaby. I also believe it is somewhat of a help to the birds homing from a race. They have very good hearing I believe. Effects on the human body? Could be the cause of my slowed down sex life. Or maybe that is due to aging?
