Carolyn you are too funny... I suspect if Dad and Handel don't go they will ride the storm out here .. there was a hurricane years ago when I first started posting on this nest and Dad and Fledgling were OK and both left later ... I am too tired to check the archives ...

From earlier ..,sun setting on Peggy Cove Village

Each day is a new surprise....we'll see. Handel is busy composing his new music. (Georg Friedrich Handel his namesake).....
Oscar is just devoted and dutiful.

I checked the DVR and no sign of Dad and Handel since 8:48a this morning.. I think they have started migration!

This is bittersweet for me .. but with the hurricane coming I am happy they did ...

Hopefully and crossing fingers, you are correct. It is for the best. They are strong and healthy, what a fabulous year!

Beat the winds little ones,
we want you out of harm's way,
stay over land, not sea,
and that will help keep you from the fray.

Thank you all for the wonderful reports here - and happy to hear that it looks as if Oscar and Handel decided to head out before the storm arrives.

Stay safe, everyone - and safe travels to Oscar, Ethel, Ollie and Handel - wishing you all warm lagoons with lots of fish until you return. :love:
