Congratulations to Genevieve Purcell for winning the 2013 First Flight!
Friends of Dunrovin's Official Judge, Terry McEneaney, filed the following report:
After careful examination of video footage taken from the Dunrovin Ranch, the largest and oldest nesting young of the year ("Percy") fledged for the first time on 21 July 2013:
- The first short flight occurred at 08:17:17 and lasted 20.1 seconds.
- The second short flight occurred at 09:18:54 and lasted 26 seconds.
- The third short flight occurred at 10:19:00 and lasted 22 seconds.
- The fourth flight occurred 10:43:16 and lasted 52 seconds.
Osprey Contests' Official rules call for a 30+ second flight duration; hence the Official Fledge Time is 10:43:16.
Genevieve Purcell's guess of 10:18:24 was the guess closest to the Official Fledge Time.
Last Flight Contest is now CLOSED.
The winning time and winning entry will soon be determined.
