New Count: 2 Fledgings (for now)

Just before 6 a.m. this morning one of the female nestlings took flight (no ID on which one at this time).  The remaining female still remains on the ledge but has been doing a lot of practice flapping and head bobbing, no doubt watching the adults and/or her previous nestmates on the wing.  It's only a matter of time...  

Even after the juveniles begin to fly, Spark and Durand will continue to feed them especially for the first few days, as was seen on the Huntington Building Friday with Bolt.  Folks downtown interested in watching should scan rooftops and window ledges for the juveniles but should also keep an eye out for the adults as they will be close by keeping an eye on their fledglings.
