Personality and Training:
Quill (68-15) is fondly called ‘Lil Quill. Beloved by all her costumed caretakers, was the last to hatch and is the youngest of the cohort. As a chick, she just wanted to make friends with all the other chicks but was—more often than not—chased away. She loves to stick close to the costumes, however, sometimes she follows TOO close! She’s also loves to dance and run laps around the ponds.
She was banded Oct. 21. On November 3 the DAR colts were not put back in the pen and were allowed to come and go as they pleased. This was their release to freedom and wildness. They soon were flying and hanging out with sandhills and adult whooper, #18-11.
