They've gotten so big.  I think dad brought breakfast, he really stayed near the opening of the nest box for an "escape route".  :D


I think this afternoon's was mom and she came in further.

Look at all the feathers coming in!  This one is sure relaxed...


The fluffy pantaloons stage...


It can really get its wings up there!


Now that's one great set of wings...

I think we were down to one full-time in the nest box youngster today.  The others could just be out of sight on the perch or ????
Meanwhile, finally a meal!




Wow look at those wings...


"MY food..."


All three are home and it looks like they'll stay the night.

We ended up with three.  I'd say two have for sure or are just getting out of sight of the cam on the perch and one close.

Not sure.  I haven't had a chance to look since earlier, but I'd been seeing one in the nest box all the time and sometimes more.

Good morning.


Eating some leftovers...


Company arrived who munched on leftovers...


"Oh boy food and I get it!!!"


In for the night....


So far the one was in ALL day and one popped in once in a while.

We're a few days short of July - time to fly.
Fireworks'll soon scare a lotta birds - but I love them  (both of them)
