I was afraid you wouldn't see all of them, it took me a bit to find the chicks on the ledge.

Thanks everyone!  I have been obsessed with the nest since last summer, our 1st summer in this apartment.  And enjoy sharing my excitement!

Yesterday I watched (I think) two of the chicks flying, I'm so amateur, but you could tell they were clumsy and one was diving after the small birds but then had to abort!  Also two falcons were following each other, not sure if it was the chicks or one adult and one chick.  I was not fast enough to try to catch any of this.

This morning was almost an identical of yesterday morning.  All 5 seen on the building.  This afternoon I could not find any of them, but now one is in the nest according to the cam.

It's raining here this morning.  The family is still here, 2 chicks on the building ledge and one in the nest (but nest cam seems to be down).  One adult is sitting on the side on an antenna, one of its favorite perches.

I haven't seen reports like yours since back when Kodak in Rochester, NY had all their watchers when the young fledged.  Again thank you!!  Back in 2004 I was looking for my first digital camera and pulled up the Kodak website because that name was the most familiar and saw the link to their cam.  That got me hooked.  Later on I found RRP's and they were more in my area, but no one was in the nest box by the time I found it, but started out the next spring.  I also found a foaling cam and have met some long time friends through that, in fact the couple that were raising the horses were in our wedding.  They've since retired and he passed away a few years ago, but she's still alive.  My dad wasn't alive anymore and Kenny walked me down the aisle and gave me away and she stood up for me.  These cams open up a whole new world for people.  When you get to meet someone from the forums it's like you've always known each other and get real live friends from other areas of the US and other countries.

All five falcons are still here.  The kids laps around the bank have gotten much bigger and I believe they have ventured out.  But I will still catch all five sitting in various locations of the bank.  One of the parents favorite hangout is at the church steeple, and I think the kids have begun to sit there also.  It's about 4 blocks from the bank.
