Missed another one. Dave, everything seems to be happening 2 days early this year in Stafford. There was a flurry of activity yesterday with both parent birds going in and out of the nestbox with food. Every once in a while one of the nestlings would poke its head out to look around and I got a few photos of that. We had an early dinner (around 4:30 pm) with my daughter and her son from Fredericksburg, and our son visiting us from Seattle. The young must have fledged either while we were eating or early this morning. I did not notice any activity at the nest box this morning and when I checked the box at 2:30 this afternoon it was empty.

I did get some photos of yesterdays doings: 1 is the female resting after feeding the brood; 2 is one of the young checking out the surrounding trees; 3 is papa bird after delivering a grub.
