SO CUTE!
Nov 6, 2021
They have been SO CUTE this morning I almost cant stand it!  Perching on the outer ledge, flying onto the window sill, running and flapping.  One gazes longingly outward.

Wont be here much longer.

One of the girls flew cautiously from ledge to window today.

? A FLEDGE TODAY ??
Nov 7

Late yesterday I thought one of the males was going to fledge yesterday. He stood at the edge of the ledge and bobbed his head as if judging distance and aiming. I got ready to snap a screen shot. He decided yesterday was NOT his day, and flapped - ran up n down on the ledge.

Its nice to see them raise 4 after one year all her chicks died.

Both males fledged
Nov 7, 2021
Nov 8 early morning in Oz
The first male aimed and considered and very confidently fledged.
That first pic is him about 10 seconds before he left.

I think the 2nd male was a bit of an accident
He saw his sibling go, look after him, flew onto the window sill - then flew to the ledge but may have miscalculated and gone over the side.  I saw him go down, not straight out.
He's probly ok


** LATER
Perhaps only one male fledged - perhaps the other flew under cam not over the edge
They changed the cam view

Much later
Male #2 took to the sky - strongly and confidently
Just the ladies left

Nov 8 in Oz
About  noon male #2 left home - confidently and strong

So both males fledged the same day - maybe 3 hours apart

SURVIVAL of the FITTEST
Nov 11, 2021
Mum was feeding Lil Sis when Big Bro flew up and grabbed it away from Sis.  Mum just observed.  Life is a struggle to survive, Sis must learn.  After a bit, Bro #2 flew in.

In the twilight of evening Mum fed Lil Sis scraps.
It appeared the 3 siblings will all spend the night up there.

I found some videos - older Sis did fledge.  I never saw it live.
The third took off 11:31 AM Nov 11, 2021
https://youtu.be/VVmjhlzfI_4

Mom came in for feeding her little one
4:05 PM  Nov 11, 2021

Great fly in by the third one~5:03 PM

My summary   :'(
Nov 12, 2021
Live cam is gone.
3 fledged.  Lil Sis went over the Rainbow Bridge.
Sometimes the parent will take the body away for her own private memorial service for her lost young.  This year they fledged 3 beautiful - and we saw it.  Australia is 3 falcons richer than in 2020


The first 3 fledged beautifully.
Lil Sis really wasnt behaving as expected the past several days.


R.I.P. Little Sis
Lil Sis didnt make it, her brothers guard her as she sails beyond

Post from bcaw
Nov 12, 2021 catwoman
MELBOURNE~367 COLLINS STREET, lost their youngest to an illness the biologists thought was trichinosis. The biologists were hesitant to go out on the ledge thinking he would fly and would surely drop to his death, and they felt that anyway, the trich couldn't be cured at this late date.

I am posting lozas pic because this is the final spot where I saw Lil Sis

I dont think they are banded so we dont know who is male/female

pic is loza
