Is it just me, or is the nest a whole lot messier than in previous years?  Could be my memory is faulty.

I think if the balcony view was working, that's what we'd be seeing more of as the box gets messier and messier...but I do think it's certainly messier than when Trey was around!  Or maybe I'm just being sentimental.  ::)

Definitely a bit messier - but it seems to be feathers as opposed to the messier body parts.  Logan looks cleaner until you look closer  :-X

The only disadvantage to the outside cam is watching them wingercising on the ledge. Be still my heart!  :o

Have you selected appropriate names for all the chicks?

I agree. Knowing they are meant to be up high, always helps to reassure me... BUT, when I read that Squeak, the AB chick fell 31 stories, my heart just about stopped!

Be safe little ones. :-*

Actually  :) Squeak is the Winnipeg (Logan) mom of the chick that ran into trouble from the Bell Tower in Edmonton.  Squeak is Pip's sister.  So many adults and chicks to keep track of now - hard to complain about that though  ;D

Thanks for the view, Eye-Spy!  Do you have a EDF (estimated date of fledge), TPC?

Technically they are all old enough to fledge anytime ... they are 36-40 days old.  I suspect that it won't be for another few days at least, maybe as long as next weekend.  No one seems to be in a big rush this year - the Logan chicks were very late, even the male and the West Winnipeg chicks may be on the wall today but they haven't seemed much interested in jumping quite yet.  Today was the first day all three Radisson chicks were up on the box edge and they haven't figured out they can run down the ledge, but hey, the days not done yet ....

Sorry folks, was working and couldn't get back to switch the cam for you earlier ...

And we've had an accidental fledge of at least one, but I suspect two of the chicks ... one has been picked up and I'm off to rehab with it, the other hopefully is higher but don't know where at the moment.

More news as I have it ...

Yup accidental fledge - little brother and one of the sisters - little brother was found on the ground and we got him off to rehab.  So far looks fine but holding him overnight to make sure.  Technically he's old enough to fledge and he isn't big so despite the white fuzzy feathers on him, this was kind of normal.  No news on the sister yet, we'll look for her again via camera at first light and have alerted all the rehab facilities that fledging season has begun!
