Update report on DDS265

On 29 September, I posted a video of Ballet Dancer's son (DDS265) that Jeffrey Low is looking after for his friend during its molt. The bird is presently only 5 1/2 months old. It has been named "Samsom".

The video below shows how the molt has progressed in the 16 days since the last recording. The molt is not complete and the tails should continue to grow longer.

There was no attempt to make the bird sing and display for the video as a rise in form during the molt can adversely affect the tail length and the bird's form after the molt. Nevertheless, the taimong's strong character and the nature of its potential display can be seen from the video.
