Well, it took them all day long until almost dark yesterday but this last nest of four have fledged. Parents were here this morning to get some worms and flew off somewhere with them. Last night they were all in our large oak tree which is handy from their nestbox but they must have moved this morning early. Whew . . . .
Thanks, Donna and Gin – yes – time to plan a “secluded” vacation.
P.S. Something to laugh over – hubby was not pleased with me when I would not let him mow the grass the day they were trying to fledge. He finally got over it when we watched them almost all day long and then got up the next morning to find empty box. I believe his exact words were “those birds need to know we have other things to do around here besides cater to them!”
