_W7I1525-001The first chick fledged some time this afternoon….right on schedule!  Checked in on the chicks late afternoon both through the New Balance Falcon Cam as well as outside the nest box in person.  The first chick has paunched into first flight and left the nest box. This photo shows the two remaining chicks.  The fledged chick was nowhere to be seen in and around the general area.  They tend to stay very close at first!
