In reply to 58willow:
If you read the blog above Willow you will see that she helicoptered up out of camera view but that is not a true 'fledge' which involves a departure from the nest in proper flight. A full fledge is certainly due and clearly imminent.
Birdies LG DU update.
In reply to Mike:
Maya frantically mantling
In reply to patily:
She has flown
Hi Patily. Chicks settled at the moment.No sign of Maya or 33.
More helicoptering earlier but resting now.
In reply to ALAN PETRIE:
Usual scene of 2 chicks resting
Frantic flapping here. One chick jumped across the nest and nearly missed the edge! It looks like a contest between here and LoL as to which one has the first fledge.
Large fish on the nest and one chick self feeding. No adults in sight.
