I just happened to see the last nestling making the decision to leave the nest. (I have only been nest watching two.) At first I saw the nestling (now fledgling) perched on the edge of the nest. The youngster was making lots of noise! I went back into the house for the camera. When I returned, he/she was perched on the ladder. I stood and watched this exciting sequence.

I feel like an empty-nester now – wondering how my two nestlings are doing out there in the big scary world.

To jump or not to jump? There is not much choice now!
