Chicks MIA??!! Not Really, Just Out of View

The buzz about the nest today is wondering where the chicks went.  Well, they actually haven't gone anywhere!  But rather they have spent most of this morning so far lounging on the lower ledge, out of view of the cameras.  The red arrow below points in the direction of about 20 feet of lower ledge that exists but is out of our view.  The chicks are simply exploring the length of the lower ledge and are fine.
When you do get a glimpse again though, be prepared to be surprised at the changes especially if you haven't tuned in for a couple of days.  The brown juvenile feathers are rapidly coming in, changing the appearance of the chicks quickly!  Here's a photo from Sunday of all three:
And another just for fun:
