Two spent the night in the nest box.  The smaller went out on the long perch and was flapping.  One of the flaps the wind caught it and it ended up on the perch in front of the nest box, but went back over to the long perch before going up on the roof.  As of 2:00 the other one is still in the nest box today.  They sure look great when they stand with their wings out and let the wind under them.

Two were in the nest box overnight.  This morning the one came out and then went to the right-hand perch, then the second one came out and sat with its wings out and after a bit disappeared.  No sign of anyone until this noon when mom or dad was perched on the right-hand perch preening and doing a lot of looking around keeping an eye out.

Two spent the night in the nest box again.  About 4:50 AM they were out on the perches.  At 5 AM the bigger one hopped in the nest box and when it hopped back onto the perch took off and the smaller one immediately followed it.

Didn't see anyone again until one landed at 11:40 and only stayed a few minutes.
