It seems as though these fledglings are nearing independence. As the Walrus once said, “The time has come …” Maybe they will not leave Ada county just yet, but their range is increasing; their flight skills are awesome; they are catching prey by themselves and they look good. Here are some photos – taken this morning, 19 July 2010 – and comments from the log.
