Won`t be too much longer.




Launched onto the roof, but still caught some air!

This year's chicks continue to frustrate my attempts to catch sight of all of them at the same time during the day.  Best I can do is when they are tucked up on the roof staying in the shade

So went back through the recorder and found this at 0453h CDT this morning ... a full adolescent chick pile

And yes, I counted - actually I waited until they got up one by one and counted.

At 8:30 pm I was able to see Ty and 3 chicks on the building and Faith was near by. Faith was enjoying a location very close to where Jules liked to spend her time.

Just spied four chicks on the east wall, sitting in pairs.

At least two chicks back tucked down together in the nestbox this evening.  No reports of problems for our first (we think) fledge from here this year.  Thanks Dupre for letting us know!

Exciting day!

Chick launched at 6:51, watched chick and one adult fly around to other side of building and lost track of them. At 6:58 Ty landed on the back of the building where I could capture his landing. At 7:01 the chick was back in sight flying above the building.




Went back to the site to check on them about 8:45. Spotted all four chicks plus Ty on the building. One of the chicks was screaming at Ty and advancing, probably asking/demanding food. Ty decided he was having none of this.




When I left there were four chicks on the walls (one on the east, three on the north), Ty was at the Bleachers and Faith at the Tower.

as of 0600h this morning, three chicks at the Diner and one adult, Faith I think by the size but the light was making it hard (sun shining directly into the camera).  May have seen adult and chick on-camera at the Bleachers but at that distance, size can be a bit of an issue.  No reports yet, so that is good.

Chicks at fledge time yesterday were between 40 and 42 days old.  And these chicks are bigger than the Radisson chicks but not so large as the Logan chicks.

on my most recent "visit" via camera, could only find one chick and it was in the shade.  Suspect that is where the others are too, just out of camera range.  It is typically what they and all the other WW chicks do when it is sunny and hot.
