Re: Bird Cam Activity this morning 7-17-20

All of the young had previously fledged on the 15th and 16th, so they were released when the nest was changed. They'll have a busy day of flight and feeding lessons before they return for the night!

If the nestling was smaller an unattached subadult male may have tried to drag the nestling out as well. We have a lis...
