    I feel a little like I did when my kids took the car out on their own after passing the driver's license test.

    It's been confirmed by a ground observer that D12 has been seen flying around and landed on the top of the nest tree. Looks like the eldest has truly found it's wings. Fly high lil guy and soon you can join your sister from another litter up in The Great White North.

    Are any of these youngsters tagged so we can know where they go? I'm going to miss watching this daily activity.

    one of the two just flew to the west limb and the second hovered over the nest for a good five seconds.

    What i find interesting is the 3 kids are only a few days apart in age, yet 12 is 1 week more advanced than 13, and almost 2 weeks more advanced than 14

    Maybe 12 got the lion's share of the food and developed more quickly and gained more strength.

    14 was the one that was hop hovering so much the last couple of weeks yet s/he seems more comfortable to see that nest under the toes than that 80 ft drop to the ground.

    Bob has posted a couple of shots on facebook of at least one of the fledglings out of the nest. One on a bluff and one in a tree by the bridge. Pretty cool stuff.

    Nest looks pretty forlorn as the sun goes down. Hope they all have a happy landing.
