I was just dozing off into a nice afternoon nap, when my wife's sister comes down stairs and says, "Tim, Chloe just flew away."
She's done it before, so I don't panic. We've let her wings grow because she enjoys flying around inside our apartment and I believe that birds are supposed to fly. I also want her to have a chance if she needs to fly to avoid trouble. So, she's getting better about flying, knows what and where home is - she just hasn't perfect her descents yet. Chloe like most living things fears falling, so she starts flapping her wings and climbs.
Most of the trees at the lake have no low branches, so I followed her about 70 feet below as she flew from tree to tree trying to figure out how to get back down.
Eventually, after about an hour and a half she landed in a pine that I could climb. By this time my wife had returned from kayaking, so I said at least take some photos.
