Are you my mommy?

A momentous occasion for baby redtail, PELE. I put him in with BONNIE 3 so he'll have a foster mom. As you can see from this photo, he's asking her just who she is. As seen in a previous post, he fell out of his nest in a tall tree and we were unable to replace him in it. He's eating his rats on his own so I figured it was time to introduce him to an adult.

Within moments he was squeeking at her and food begging. He'd already finished one rat so he wasn't hungry but perhaps just needing some necessary support from who he thought might be his mom. Now I hope they bond and he becomes a stronger bird as he ages. He's only about 40 days old now and weighs a whopping 34.5 ounces.
