First...a big shout out to Bev. for posting the Edmonton pics...I've just been so caught up in the Columbus and Harrisburg nests that there has been little time for anything else....but I just had to post this pic from this morning...this nest makes me sooooooo nervous...but, I think they have solved their leg room issue...

Does anyone know what happened with the chick who was out of the nest box? I haven't been online for a few days, and when I checked the site this evening, I could only see one chick in the box at first. Then I realized there were two more visible above the box:



A little later there were at least three. I can't really see the fourth one at the back clearly enough to tell whether this is a chick or an adult:

Not watching this closely, Alison - but I think I see 3 chicks above the nestbox in the first pic you posted, and four inside in the second one.  I'm going to assume all is well and they are progressing nicely.  ;D

This nest box really made me nervous, but I didn't realize that could get out of the back side of it and onto some type of roof. They will definitely wing flapping room up there, if they don't try it all at once. Just observed 3 out of the nest on roof and one still in nest.

I could only see three chicks at the nest earlier. They are constantly wandering:





Finally, all four were visible:

Any updates if anyone of them have fledged yet?

I don't know whether they have actually fledged. When I first checked today, the nest box was empty: then there was one in the box and one flapping on top of it. A little later I found three chicks in the nest box:







At the moment the nest box is empty again.

Hi Alison, checked out your pics which were great. If 3 are accounted for is 4 up on the roof out of view. Guess time will tell. Tks for the info.

They may have walked farther than the roof. The nest box is still empty, and no sign of any of the chicks on the roof either.

Two of the juvies visited the nest box this evening, and one decided to spend the night. I wish we knew whether all four fledged successfully.

I haven't seen anything but an empty nest box for the past two days.

Found a story on the banding at this nest, which must have happened some time back although the story was dated June 25.

The chicks were named for Nebraska rivers; the two females were named Nemaha and Niobrara, and the two males were named Platte and Calamus.

There are a few pics with the article:
