Belated Update From MEC

June 15, 2016 - Mississauga - Executive Centre

Tracy Simpson Reports:
A huge thank you to Winston for continuing to check in on Josally and Olimar for us over at MEC. Although belated, I wanted to share Winstons observations of the boys from this past weekend.
The two boys at MEC are doing great. Josally is a few steps ahead of Olimar but as of Sunday evening, both are up and flying and even kiting together.
After Olimar’s night in the tree on Tuesday, he has managed to stay up at rooftop level ever since without needing a rescue. He doesn’t fly nearly as often as Josally and his landings are far more clumsy than his brother’s. With that said, Olimar is able to sustain altitude and maneuver in some serious wind. All week, but especially Sunday, was windy at MEC and MEC winds are hard to predict as they tunnel and swirl. Sunday was so bad that I had to seek shelter as the objects hitting my face were getting in all the wrong places. Even the flag on MEC1 ripped. Olimar’s skill in flight is in contrast to his awkward landings. He doesn’t attempt to land on irregular objects unless that object is his brother. The good news is that all his landings are slow enough to mitigate risk of injury.
Josally  on the other hand never had the set backs of his brother so his success has not been retarded. He regularly lands on the Desjardins sign and is much more frequently seen going for short trips around MEC3 and between 1 and 3. I caught him double checking how beautiful he was in the window. Until Olimar figures out his landings, I will still be checking in on MEC but both birds are progressing nicely.

MEC Boys Doing Great

June 12, 2016 - Mississauga - Executive Centre

Tracy Simpson Reports:

As of Tuesday we had to switch gears and move down to the Islington Bloor site for full time watching leaving MEC in the capable hands of Grace and Winston. We left off with Josally flying like a pro and Olimar catching up quickly. On Tuesdat morning Olimar had flown over to the CIBC lower roof on the west side of Hurontario and his following flight was m ant to get him home. He flew up just short of the ledge and had to circle back losing elevation as he went. He flew towards MEC 4 and fluttered down into a tree where he spent the night getting rained on. By the next day Winston reported that he had made it back up to a window well on MEC 3 and was safely reunited with his brother. Subsequent spot ch CDs had both boys flying well with Olimar still a bit shaky on his landings but at least making good choices.

Bothe Josally and Olimar are well on their way under the watchful eyes of Midnight and Renegade.  We will continue to check in on them and provide you with updates.  Thank you to Bruce, Winston, Margaret and Grace for  keeping an eye on the kids this year.  Excellent job everyone!
