BTW, for those who have not been following the Cornell Red-shoulder Cam, the first chick (the eldest) of three fledged yesterday. What a worrisome experience that was. She was flapping and jumping around on this light tower platform and then flapped herself right off the platform. Kind of "trial by fall" fledging. At least she had the presence of mind to extend her wings has she fell and actually glided/flopped/flew to a safe tree branch. She then managed to fly to another perch that (it appears) she intended to fly to, so it's looking good for her. One of the siblings watched with some interest for a bit and then practiced flapping himself. Neither of the other two had left the nest by this morning however.
