During the day, the nest is often empty now. But the fledglings reappear when they are hungry or sleepy. Often the entire family can still be seen on the nest at night. Richie continues to bring fish to the nest and Rosie too. The fledglings sometimes fight over the fish but increasingly are waiting patiently for their turn, perhaps because they have eaten off the nest and are not hungry. At least one has been seen on the nest wet, as though he may have tried fishing on his own.
Poppy is quite proficient with perching and flying. Lupine is still a bit wobbly but is catching up quickly.
The big news of the month was that new data from the DNA taken when the chicks were banded indicated that there were not three males but rather one male and two females. WP (Poppy), the eldest and (VZ) Lupine, the youngest are now considered female. (WR) Sage is still male. This, of course, was of no interest to the birds. They presumably don't worry about gender until it is time for them to mate.
