A few weeks ago Ozzie and Harriet came back to the nest in the flower pot. This time we decided to give them a bit of privacy and did not put the spy camera above he nest. In short order two eggs were laid and we think two chicks hatched but we only saw one being fledged after we were gone to Balsam for the weekend. The younger/surviving chick we named Thorny for Ozzie and Harriets’s next door neighbor. Tonight the family was spotted on the railing of our neighbors deck. It was a long conversation obviously giving young Thorny last minute instructions on how to file proper flight plans and instrument landing procedures :).
