After the rain

… and before the next downpour.

I watched the chicks off and on today, hoping — for a change — that they wouldn’t decide to fly, and they didn’t. But they did seem close for a while when the rain stopped sometime after 5 p.m., when one female chick, perched on the left side of the ledge, spent several minutes flapping madly. The male chick joined in for a bit, and then the rain started again. The chicks retreated from the edge, and then Rowena arrived with dinner, so I called it quits for the day.

Before the re-deluge, I managed to digiscope a few photos.

This one wisely stayed under the overhang and out of the inevitable next downpour. June 24, 2014.

This one looked a bit miffed when the drizzle put a damper on her flapping practice. June 24, 2014.
