June 16, 2021 dawn
I see 3 headless juvies perched on the nestbox
Mom awake on duty at the back corner of the roof
If Juvie #4 has fledged, it was ready.
It may be at the back
The Elks will inform us.

From Elk River staff June 16

We no longer have access to the back camera. As far as I can tell, this morning the 3 that were in the nest box were the two females H21 & H22 and one male 05/U. I'm pretty sure all 4 have fledged.

FYI - the cameras will be offline sometime between now and Friday for the monthly server patching.

AWWWWW .....
Another happy sad moment.
YAY our babies are growing up, doing what is natural.
*SNIFF* We wont see em anymore

Another joyously successful year for Brook n Breezy

ALL 4 FLEDGED!
June 17, 2021
3 juvies spent the night perched on the box edge.
I watched them.  They preened and screamed
They went to top of nestbox and had a little fight.
Then 2 of them fledged from there off the EAST side.
Juvie #4 said - WAIT FOR ME! and fledged east off rooftop.
I think the first one fledged June 16 and is on the east side.

Cam is on the south side - cooler up north - behind the box during day
They are flying around on the roof, fly on top of nestbox and scream at Mom hiding inside box.
I saw all 3 juvies up on the roof June 16
They'll be gone soon - but not yet.

One male may have fledged and not returned.

TOO EARLY to turn cam off

June 18
3 juvies perched on box perch overnite.
They flew up from below somewhere.
I wonder about #4
The people around there have to HEAR him!

5 pm One juvie flopped on roof in shade of house
2 more juvies fly up together, they greet each other and all go behind the house.

NICE VISIT
July 10, 2021
I was so happy to see our juvies visit!
I clicked in and saw a bloody mess on the roof.
I DVR'd back and found 2 juvies home
