Fledge day

Friday. The predicted has happened. The first baby has fledged. Only two siblings in nest with parents calling for remaining babies to fledge.

Come out, come out, come out!

Food deliveries to nestlings, but not as frequently.

There's movement under the nest. The first fledgling hasn't gotten very far. He's gone from nest to under the nest.

Meanwhile, it's starting to rain. Parents are feeding babies. Parents are calling for remaining babies to fledge.

That's it kiddo, stretch..... take off. It's time to meet the world.

No! Go up, not down!

I've gone back upstairs to get rain gear. An hour later I come back to the garden to see how fledging has progressed. Two babies still in nest. First fledgling has moved to tree across path. Cozy. Leaf umbrella.

To be continued.
