As some of you know, I am not content in just watching them go, I try very hard to get good pictures of them as they leave. It is not easy because they don't always fly in the direction you think they will, and two, they don't tell you when they are ready to go.
Here are three shots from a past fledge day, showing a male fledgling as it peers out, then makes that "leap of faith."
