Yup, we definitely had a second fledge yesterday ... only two left on the ledge - male and female and they are not so willing to head out at the moment - they are sound asleep nose-to-nose on a ledge in the shade.
Nice to know the female and one brother are resting comfortably; I hope her other two brothers are somewhere safe.

Chick three fledged but couldn't get back to the nestledge and dribbled down to the ground.  Picked him up and returned him to the nestledge but not before his sister made her first flight - and a very nice flight it was, maintained her altitude, made a bit up at the end but didn't quite manage to reach the ledge she wanted to land on.  Instead she landed on a wide ledge about 3 feet below without a problem.  When she screws up the courage to try again, and if she does as well then as she did the first time, she'll be back on the nestledge in no time flat.  And her brother (fledge #3) is waiting patiently for her - these two are very much best buds.

Our three chicks have returned - I say three because the chick that fledged first has yet to return so far as we can tell, but sometimes it is hard to see the tape on their bands.  And it is not unusual for one chick to just take off - Hurricane and Alley were like that and they did fine.

So, our lone female who fledged just as I was putting chick 3 back on the roof took all day but it wasn't the time, it was the incentive.  Joli and a very plump dinner item was the real reason she came home.  She's wanted to for much of the day but it has been too high and she hadn't figured out yet that she just needs to circle round and that would get her up there.  So it looks like Joli used the food as a very effective lure and our girl was not graceful but she stuck the landing like a pro - and then she scarfed all the food and would not share with her brothers.  She is still picking at the bones (there is absolutely nothing she hasn't eaten) and the boys are napping a few feet away.  All in all, a happy little picture and I suspect they will all stay together tonight - today's fledgers don't seem inclined to venture out again and fledger #2 very much prefers company.

The three Logan chicks (female & 2 males) are back again for the night.  Logan girls best brother is tucked up in a fledgling chick pile with her napping on the ledge.  Other brother is napping nearby sitting up.

Yes, they have.  For whatever reason I was really twitchy about publishing the names before they fledged - like it would jinx it or something.  Not sure why, maybe everything was going so well made me nervous.

Anywho, the Logan chicks are named in honour of Queen Elizabeth's 90th birthday and the Duke of Edinburgh's 95th.  The chicks are Elizabeth (green tape), Philip (no tape/silver), Mountbatten (red) and Windsor (yellow).  Windsor was the first to fledge, Mountbatten the little charmer was the second and Elizabeth and Philip have been pretty much inseparable - he even came back at night to sleep with her right until her last day on the nestledge.  Haven't seen much of Windsor since he fledged, but Mountbatten kept coming back to visit (and for a meal).

During this memorable year in the lives of the Royals, these names are so appropriate.  ;D

Classy names! :)

That's so sweet to hear how Elizabeth and Philip have been sticking together. I hope they stay that way for a while ...

Haven't seen anyone here for days and days and days ... might just be my timing or their sneakiness, but all has been very quiet on camera ...

Finally I've caught a bird on camera at Logan.  Bird was by the nestbox preening but they were twisting so much that it looked more like Hart than Joli.  Then s/he was in the nestbox looking just as distressed as Princess and Smiley at the state of the box - but their box is much smaller so it isn't actually as bad just more locally concentrated.  Anywho bird hooped out of the box to preen again on a different perch and I though maybe I saw a flash of pink on the leg and which goes with my overall impression that it is Joli even though I couldn't really see her speckles - maybe the light or the fluffed up feathers while grooming ... I really need to get name tags for these birds for when the light sucks in the late afternoon!!!
