Fourth Baby Flies First!

You know how on many days you can look just fine and head out into the world presentably enough without doing much of anything, but then sometimes you shower, brush your teeth, run a comb through your hair, take care in selecting your clothes, add a few extra touches and, in no time, you've got a bit of a wow factor going?

Well, Stria #4, the last in my recent stripes series to hatch, has fully fledged out ahead of its fellow nestlings, preened itself, and taken off in flight … with a bit of a wow factor going, if it does say so itself. From birth to birthday card in just eight days!

And where has this fledgling landed after its inaugural aerial adventure?

On Michael's birthday! Happy birthday, Michael!
