Hi All,

It looks like the Midnight/Noontime (near Castle Rock, Leavenworth, WA)
birds didn't nest this year, at least in this area. The seasonal closure
for these two rocks has been lifted early, effective immediately.

At the Snow Creek Wall, two chicks fledged by mid-day on the 25th while
the third was still at the eyrie. Climbers should be aware that the
chicks are still weak flyers and you could encounter them anywhere along
the wall, as well as their protective parents.

Attached is a photo of the 2 chicks that fledged. Based on sizing
comparison to the adult female who came in to deliver food we think that
these are males.
