Lucie Kirchknopf reports:

I started watching at around 7:00 pm, and at 8:15, the activity started when a parent flew in with food. Three out of four kids went for it and as everything was happening very quickly, I’m not sure who the winner was in the food transfer .. I could see it wasn’t BULLET (red) or STARLIGHT (yellow). I’m leaning towards BIP (white) but my photos are quite grainy.

What showed the great flying skills of these kids was how white?, having difficulty getting height to the roof of the condo, was heading towards the glass/wall. Although the parent was right there, white? did an awesome swerve away from the condo and with that extra weight, I’d say that shows some good skills. I tried to capture this in my photos as best as I could.

Once things quieted down, I figured it was time to call it a night. It was about 8:45. I was parked on Eagle Road and while putting away my camera, I just happened to look up at the Bell Building (low rise, about 2 stories) and there they were .. BIP and STARLIGHT lol. So typically I would be getting ready to text someone about this just in case, but something told me to wait .. that these two were going to be just fine. STARLIGHT took off towards Bloor Street and around the corner flying very low. I turned around to see BIP and she was gone too. So I just waited.

It was after 9:00 pm .. I set my camera’s lighting and as grainy as it was, I could make out band colours! All ended well! On the condo beam were BIP and STARLIGHT! BULLET landed on the ‘p’ of the Flipp sign and soon enough BIP joined him. STARLIGHT remained on the condo beam. FREEDOM (blue) was on the nest ledge.

I left feeling quite happy!
