Hey Johnie, there is a good chance it could be back later today or tomorrow. Try putting a couple birds in a wire pen and set on top of the kit box. This may help coax it if it sees them - should it fly by the property.

Good for you! I still remember when I released a grizzle roller for the very first time that once it came out from box, fluttered its wing to go the roof that a hawk came swooping and that was the end of that. I never got a chance to see that bird performs. It was like the hawk was waiting for its meal. It was depressing.

Your birds were probably a few doors down watching you and wondering what the heck your looking for up in the air. Good luck with your birds GJ.

THANKS Tony Dave Rod- It is nice that first time they go up but also worrisome that something will happen to them- Guess I'm lucky not many Hawks around my place- a few up real high never come down after my birds. Don't have CAT problem anymore only one way in loft "front door". GOD BLESS!!!!
