    :bluebird6: Well, my lone chick (Bobby) fledged tonight! He’s in the bushes now happily being tendered to by mom and dad. I took the box down to clean and there were still two eggs, never hatched. No third egg so I assume two hatched, one died and only one survived to fledge. It’s bitter sweet, I hate seeing two unhatched eggs, but thankful that this little man beat the odds and hopefully will one day become a Papa. Now I wait to see if a second brood awaits. I’m hoping it will!!

    Congratulations on your fledge.
    Give it 2-3 weeks. They are busy helping this one survive. They won’t be far away and you may see them from time to time back exploring the nestbox in preparation for the next nest.
