So, the cams will stay on for a while, to catch when they do!Fledging doesn't mean the nestlings are on their own, however.Once the fledglings can hunt and survive on their own, they will leave the parents themselves.

Keep an eye out for the next nesting season in 2018, which typically begins in March-May in Idaho.
We'll be excited to start up the live stream again when nesting behavior begins!

We discovered she was caught and banded in 2016 as a breeder 5.5 miles away!
