Bolt came back to the nest ledge this evening. 8)  

No reports of Bolt until almost 9 pm when he came back to the nest ledge!  Not only is it great to see a fledgling return but it great to know they are doing so well so soon in their flight career.

Bolt (banded black/red N/34) fledged this morning. He was seen during the day on the Huntington Building, being fed by a parent.

No further sightings so far. I hope the little guy will stay safe.

The two girls were on the ledge a few minutes ago; Storm is banded black/red 46/Z, and Flash is banded black/red 37/Z.

Checked this site. Chicks have moved to outside the nestbox. Two camera views, one inside, one outside.

Just went to this site.  It is raining there right now. Could see a bird at the end of the ledge by the nest box.  Closer to the camera is a bird lying on its side with with no head.  Looks big but that could be because it is closer to the camera. I guess one of the adults brought it there and just left it.  There is a chick in the nest box.  Wow he/she has almost all dark feathers and just a bit of white fluff.

As a transplanted Ohio Buckeye, I can tell you for sure, these names are appropriate for the area.  ;D

LOL, gemcity! Your comment gave me a chuckle! :D

They banded the birds here yesterday and have names for them but the names are not attached to the band numers yet.  They have a video of putting the chicks back in the nest box afer banding.  They use a huge umbrella to keep the parents from attacking them.  Fun to watch.

There are now 4 beautiful balls of fluff at this site.  :) :)

Durand just fed them and there are still only three chicks and one egg yet.  ;)
