Eat, Sleep, Eat, Sleep, and Now Mobility!

We are approaching the 2 week mark!  All of the chicks are doing well and have even started moving around the nest box and flapping their wings:
They are being fed well!  The bulge in the throat each has in the top photo is a full crop.  When one or more of the chicks doesn't get a full meal one feeding, they are usually the first to get fed at the next feeding.
And, what goes in must come out so you'll notice the nest box getting an increased amount of splattering of falcon poo from the chicks.  At some point we can expect them to start hitting the front of the nest box camera which usually obscures our view to a degree.
Thanks to a fan in Georgia, here is an amusing video set to music-enjoy!
