I'm not sure where our visitor has gone, but initially I spotted him (or her) peeking out from inside the nest. Perhaps it was time for another nap ... or maybe the visit is over.  ???

Yes, they are! I was doing a cursory check of the nest, where no-one ever seems to visit, when I saw a beak peeking  out from below the overhang. The beak disappeared immediately, but then the juvie did make a short appearance.

By the way, I don't know if anybirdie was there earlier today. (I just happened to click on the cam at the right time.) All is quiet again ... wonder if our visitor flew off?
 
Nice to know that you also spotted our visitor, Alison!  :D

Aww - really nice to know that was Porter at the nestbox.  :)

I see he's continuing to get around very well now, so his flying ability must have improved greatly.

Yesterday, while watching Porter (our visitor) pick at the old food remains, I hoped he was simply playing and not that hungry!

Wonder where our birdies have gone ... perhaps they're closer to the river.

Anyone spot a balcony visitor this year?

When I check the cam........nothing.  :( Thanks Burdi for your updates. And thanks RCF for your photos. I'm thinking because Porter has had some mishaps, he, more than the girls, will occasionally return to his roots. "Be it ever so humble, there's no place like home!"  :)

Thank you for following up with pictures, RCF.

GCG, I totally agree with your comment regarding Porter returning to his roots. He appears to be a loner, and he's possibly finding some comfort at home.  :)

I'm wondering if Purdie and Pippy are still enjoying time together.
