Stinker #1 takes her first bath. She gave up the park's trees and spent most of Saturday on the buildings north and south of her nest.<br>
Her flying is simply remarkable for the short period out of her nest.

Lima standing where her baby was just a few minutes before.

Stinker #1 is by far the most advanced flier in the shortest period of time that I have experienced.

Palemale having a refreshing drink of water.

Palemale visits Stinker #1 on his high perch. Both parents continue to feed the sibling still in the nest but they did not bring any food to this baby all day.
