This is the third nesting. It's interesting that this time the mother and one fledgling come back to the nest to sleep in the evening at about 7 pm, and leave early in the morning at about 7 am.

Hi MW,
Yes, this is the third nest on my balcony. Both chicks fledged on 5 Jul 2012. But one fledgling and its mother have been returning to the nest in the evening to sleep overnight. Usually escorted by papa :). Last evening I saw them returning to sleep.
