Chicks flapping on the edge and then a parent shows up with food.  :)

You have an advantage, TPC, with three cams, while the rest of us can only view one.

That would be the logical assumption but actually, the little beggars manage to stay out of sight a lot!  And on both sides of the building!!!

Oh boy, well I'm not surprised - a beautiful day for fledging I have to say. - Stay safe little un-named ones!!  :-*

(I still remember a few years ago when all the kids used to come back to the nest each evening - that was awesome.)  ;D

Hopefully we will again be treated with their nocturnal visits. Bringing "Lost" along.

Nope, other sister fledged late yesterday - that is little brother, he's been up and down the ledge by the nestbox and I think he may well have voluntarily fledged as well, but can't be sure as if he did, he did it off camera!  We'll see what he gets up to over the rest of the day.  And the accidentally fledged sister has found somewhere new to perch - can't find her on the building she was sticking to now.

I've got the skycam keeping an eye on the ledge, the balcony cam watching the balcony and the inside box came, well watching the inside of the box - theoretically if someone comes or goes we should see it!!

So other sister has fledged. I hope she is safe, wherever she is. In fact, I hope all three are safe. If lilttle brother fledged, it is very recent, since the image I posted was from about five minutes earlier. You have an advantage, TPC, with three cams, while the rest of us can only view one.

Still one on the balcony, but the other chick may very well be in the nest.

Yes, just one on cam now, unless the other one is on the part of the ledge that is out of camera shot - but I'll bet somebirde flew the coop! :o - Hope all went well and we have sightings!  :)

.....hmmm - Now they're both gone! ?  :-X

as of 1655h, one chick is outside on the box edge preening, other one is inside napping flat in front of the camera.  The not-lost-anymore chick is still nearby.  :D

I saw that too, Monarch and wondered if someone else had gone, but then I saw a little head peaking out from inside and they were both still there.  I'm guessing they're both inside now, napping and trying to stay out of the sun.  I hope so  ::)
