Here's a little happy news, or happier news ...

We had a chick go down at another nestsite, not old enough to fledge but about the same body size as the Logan chicks but a few days younger.  Unfortunately, we couldn't safely for the adults and chicks at that site, we couldn't put the chick back so we decided to foster the chick with Joli and Hart.  Lots of room, playmates, a wickedly protective mom and a dad who's a bad provider and a nestsite that is accessible and safer than others.  So after having the chick checked out, we got the tot (big tot) installed at Logan and then we sat down and watched on the cams.  Didn't take long for her (we believe) to make friends with her cousins (remember all the chicks in town are cousins one way or another) and after a meal courtesy of Joli, everyone settled down to sleep in a pile last night.  This morning, Hart and Joli both fed the chick and the chick did some self-feeding, which the Logan chicks don't do much of if Joli & Hart are willing to feed them (pampered tots ;)). 

We haven't fostered, or needed to foster chicks, in a number of years - nice to see it working just like I remember it from way back when.

First Logan chick (the male)  fledged this morning just after dawn and came back to his cousin just before noon for leftovers.  The Logan sisters are off - I believe on the ledge that curves around a corner so I can't follow them on camera.  Or they too could have fledged - the Logan chicks are 38-41 days old, so right in the zone for first flights.

This is a happy beginning for this chick. It could have had a sad ending if not found, checked for injuries and placed with an obvious inviting family. Thanks for sharing, TPC! When will all the chicks be named?

Second fledge yesterday, one of the two remaining Logan females.  She did not badly until she didn't.  Don't worry she was fine.  Got herself caught in a place where she needed to a) be rescued or b) figure out how to work her way out.  She did the latter and more power to her - she managed to not only get grounded, then up but managed to get most the way back up to the height of the nest before she needed to take a nice long break.  She was there for most of last evening.  She didn't make it back to the nest to sleep so far as we can tell last night but it may be she was just off camera.  We do know that second Logan female, foster female and little male hung out with Joli last night right at the nsetbox.  It was cute - they were four little statues all sound asleep for hours.  Then off went Joli, Logan female started her morning flap and landed on sleeping brother, who looked bemused for a few minutes to have lost his lovely napping spot (see photo below) and flew off.  Then Logan female went running off camera and I can't find her so not sure if that mans she's fledged - reasonable given her age and that her sister has gone - or if she's gone to hang out on a ledge around the corner where our cameras can't reach.  Only time will tell.  At the moment, foster sister is perched on the edge of the nestbox looking very much like a grown up peregrine (she's lost a lot of fuzz from yesterday) napping and not looking too interested in following her foster sibs wherever they may be.

All the Logan chicks have fledged and are very quickly getting the hang of flying.  They have been back to the nest and higher than the nest and all without the lure of food to drag them around.  The foster chick hasn't really shown much interest yet in flying, quite a patient bird which is kind of cute to watch.  Today all the Logan chicks have come back within seconds of my checking out the camera - and they all come to visit the foster chick - another rather cute thing to watch. Very glad this fostering seems to working out well.

Have seen Joli and Hart this morning - both at the nest-tray.  Have definitely seen the Logan boy and the foster chick near the nest.  Saw two more birds that were farther away but my sense was that it was one or both of the Logan sisters but I can't be sure ... will keep looking though. 

Haven't been able to take any photos this morning because part of the site is in shade, part in bright sun, the birds are in the shade and they just look black.  Will need to wait for the sun to move further to the west and see who might be around to catch on camera ...
