Well guys and gals. I have been trying to figure out what to say after this weeks race. First of all I would like to say congradulations to all the birds that made it home. Second I want to say I am sorry about the rest that didn't make it . This is not what I expected at all. The birds looked and felt good . The weather was perfect. Not too much wind and cool.
The last few days I have got a few calls with birds that have been found. It seems that they must have made a wrong turn and went too far east on the other side of the mountain range towards Wyoming. Why I don't know. We only jumped them 30 miles . I have been watching around the bird world and noticed that we are not the only race that is having difficulty . It seems the times are changing! Not sure what we can do about it.
Race 3 well be flown this Saturday with weather permiting. It looks good so far.
Thanks for your understanding and good luck!
Well Travis got up this morning and drove all te way to Osgood and had terrible weather!20 to 25 mph headwinds and rain. Our reports earlier were sopposed to be good weather but things changed for the worse. We well be trying to let the birds out on the way home somewhere and use it as a trainer. We well let everyone know when we are rescheduling. Sorry for the delay but we think it is for the better.
The weather has not been good this weekend. Race 2 well be flown on Wednesday weather permitting. It well be from Osgood Idaho . 170 miles. The birds have been out loft flying most days when we got a window and today I well be taking them out about 30 miles.
A little note . Some of the entry fees have not come through yet . We have been trying to contact those of you that still have not got it in. Please get on our site and pay as soon as possible.
Well its time to get down and dirty boys and girls! Tomorrow well be our activation race from East Fort Hall. It well be a 127 mile race and well be starting at 8:00 if everything goes well. The weather looks good. A little breeze in there face and the temp is cool. All the fixins for a great day.
All birds that come in from this race well be elligible to fly the rest of the series and the entry fees well be due this week so we can continue on. All birds well have to pay the $200 to continue. For you high rollers you can enter any of your birds that you feel can take it all. Also the eliminater is available for $25 this week and goes up in cost as time goes on. So get in while it is less $$ . It is a one time fee. Thanks to all and good luck!
Sorry to all with todays training that you received on wincompanion. I put in the wrong time on the release so it showed that most of the birds showed up before I let them go. We have been sending the birds out almost every day and they are getting stronger and stronger. We well continue to stretch them out but we are not in a hurry. Each station we well be releasing aprox 3 times before we move on.
All the birds are looking great. The moult is is complete on almost all birds and they love flying. Thanks to all The Evolution team
We had a clock malfunction. all the Birds came great from about 8 miles away. So ignore the negitive speeds. over 250 birds were clocked.

Well the hot days of summer are upon us and the birds like to be in there loft while the heat is high during the afternoon. Early morning they are let out and they are enjoying the flying while its cool. Most of the birds are just getting through the end of the moult. The 9 and 10 flights are either in or coming in nicely. I have been taking them out in the trailer for short distances to get them used to the traveling and anything else that is to come with the trailer. We well start the longer training in August. For now everything is just letting them progress little by little.
The birds health is great. I handled every bird yesterday and all seemed to be healthy.
Well I think we are finallly through receiving birds. I can try to get them all on the same training schedule. Up till now we had new birds arriving and it is difficult to get the young birds at the same stage as the older. We have turned off the lights and are trying to get the birds through th moult.
I have got to admit that it has been a difficult year as far as health. I have struggled to keep every ones birds up and going but I think we are past that stage and they are doing well. We have all birds flying daily up till now and about 90% of them are routing . Going through the moult well slow our flying for a bit.
We have done another inventory today. The last one was not very correct. We had computer problems so check and see if your birds are in the clock. I think we have the bugs worked oout . Thanks to all and good luck The Evolution team
