155:365 Fly Away Home

Hard to believe the baby birds are this big already - but about 2 hours or so after I shot this, those two stepped up and flew out of the nest! At last check, there is still one baby left in the nest.

This was taken on Saturday the 4th.

I came home from the Jewel to find the one on the left standing on the edge of the nest - I ran for the camera, but I wasn't quick enough - he flew right out, and on to my driveway - his sibling followed shortly thereafter.

I was out later in the day, and found one of them hanging out in the grass - he must have eventually gotten up the gumption to fly, because I haven't seen him - or any of the three of them - since.
