Eye Injury Update

So today I was shooting solely to see how the eye injury looked on O-2. Not much change, really. It looks like she is keeping the eye closed so hopefully it is an injury that will heal itself. It doesn't look good at this point, but hopefully it is not as bad as it looks. Otherwise, O-2 appears to be quite healthy and growing by leaps and bounds. The injury doesn't seem to affect her branching ability, as you can see she is on the branch while O-1 takes it easy in the nest. It is pretty apparent that they are getting to the point where both don't fit in the nest hollow, and as a matter of fact, I have noticed that they appear to be roosting on the branch above the nest at night. Will check back in a few days for an injury update.
