Screamin' Willie and one of the Hot Chix jumped out of the nest box today and are exploring the ledge.
The two left behind have tested their wings and taken a run or two at it, but you know, it looks like a long way down there, and it might be best to take a nap first.
I can relate, hon.
One of the chicks was out of the box yesterday, but an observer said it looked like the little fellow backed up to the edge of the box to potty over the side and tumbled over backward.
It found its way back into the box at about twilight. I think it double-dog dared the rest to try today.
