Wow dad doesn't even have to give bites to individual ones, they just grab it.  ;D  They're sure getting around good.

I see the Alma gang have their bands!!!!  There is sure a pile of them when they snuggle down together and looks at those wings!  Tails are growing and wing tips!

Wow they're starting to look like birds instead of balls of fluff.  They're getting out on the perches now too!

They're really getting into going onto the perches and flapping up to the roof.

This one amazed me before it went up on the roof.  It was perched on the perch and doing bouts of wing flapping.  This time WHILE FLAPPING it reached a foot up and scratched under the chin!!!

Poor dad.  He brought a meal and all four we very anxious to get it.  One grabbed it from him and then another went his direction with its wings all spread.  He took refuge on the other perch while they worked on the meal.

6-7-23 Dad was out on the perch and one of the juvies made its way out there and was picking at him and bugging him, so he went to the other perch where the ones in the nest box were bothering him and then took refuge up on the roof.  The original juvie got up there and dad took off.

One was on the right perch flapping like crazy.  It went over the left perch and was doing a lot of looking around and accidentally left the perch.  The two at the nest box looked down.  (About 1535)

About 1800 -- Dad brought a meal and started feeding the one in the nest box.  The little guy on the roof came down to the perch, then flew to the perch on the right.  Dad brought some leftovers to the entrance to the box and the little guy flew over to him, missed, and went down.  Dad looked down and dove after him.  The little guy was back after while.

Three are flying to the roof and/or elsewhere.  #4 is now flapping out on the perch, but no roof yet.

They're gonna have their wings full with this batch, they're all flying.  Two were in the nest box when it got light, spent some time on the perches flapping.  Another flew in and joined them.  Dad flew in with a meal and it was grabbed while he was on the perch and he got out of there.  Two bigger ones went in the corner of the nest box and both were mantling and eating and the little guy went in there and crawled under the wings of the one and darned if he didn't get it!!!  After all three were done eating and left one of the parents showed up and checked for them and sat on the perch after seeing no one home.
