It is official, one of our chicks fledged!! We knew it was only a matter of time as practice flights across the nest were taking place last week. Over the weekend one chick was brave enough to leave the nest. Even as the chicks take to the skies, they will still return home from time to time. Oliveea will welcome them and may even provide a meal or two. I am certain all our moms out there can relate to that. Even when we are old enough to be out on our own, mom still wants to take care of us!
