Has Bolt Bolted?!

This morning about 9:20 a.m. some viewers reported they thought one of the falcons fledged!  The female nestlings remain on the platform in front of the ledgecam blocking view of the rest of the ledge so we don't know for sure...but it is very, very possible that Bolt has taken flight.  I've already gotten emails from some folks who work downtown who will be watching extra close out their windows and at lunch today to see if they can confirm.  Thanks to those folks and we really appreciate all of the extra eyes downtown!
