While the nest first looks like it’s occupied by two adults, mom soon shows up at the 1:52 mark to feed her chicks that are rapidly outgrowing their birthplace – and both of which are very close to fledging. After mom leaves there’s some preening and stretching that goes on to the 4:14 point wherein both start giving their wings a good workout.

Whenever they do attempt that first flight — one of the riskiest moments in their young lives — they’ll benefit from mom having built their nest a few feet above a flat-roofed shed, which will not only give them a stable surface to land upon, but could also keep them from winding up on the ground and whatever dangers lurk down there.
