Nest update - going, going, gone

I took these two photos after dinner last night. As you can see, the chicks have grown by leaps and bounds over the past few days.
This morning when I popped my head out the front door to get the newspaper the nest was empty. It would appear that both chicks fledged early this morning.
I've now given the Ivy Geranium in that pot a good drenching, poor thing has only had about a cup of water in the past month!
Now that the plant is watered and back up on the hook, the question is will there be two more eggs in the nest within the next week? Stay tuned.


  1. Very neet to be able to follow the birds as they day you will come out to look and they will have flown the nest...just like kids!


  2. This is so cool. We have a couple pairs roosting nearby, and have for years, but I'm not sure where. I just know they are really close

  3. That is an awesome photo. I wish them well on their way in the world.
