3 DOWN
June 19, 2021
3 have fledged, 1 left.
1 fledged intentionally, 2 fludged.
Today the last male was going crazy,
he tried to leap back into nestbox from outer perch cam left
he didnt make it, fell inbetween, tried to grab that cement crack and hang on  :D
but dropped

He was ready.  I am sure they are all fine

Sibling came down from roof. I dunno when he flew up there
He said - lose the pounds and join us down there!

The fat girl still looks too clumsy to even perch let alone fledge

Love that last picture.  Chubby and fluffed feathers.  Reminds me of the cartoon birds that are mad.  :D
