June 7, 2014 the single MALE chick was banded and named Macintosh.
The nestbox smelled bad and gravel was cached, so GSB swept it out and replaced with new gravel.
There was a rotting egg in which a hatching chick died - they just left there to attract flies and wasps.
Of 5 eggs, 1 was infertile and female falcon ate it.
3 chicks died in the egg, couldnt hatch.  
Several of us could hear the eggs cheeping loudly.

The lone chick screams all the time - even while eating.

Unbelievable as it seems, the sole surviving chick jumped or fell AGAIN.
At about 6:45 pm it tried to exit the box and fell.

Well he fledged!  Flew up to top of bluff, played on the cedar snag.
Poor thing is covered with bugs - probly gnats.

UPDATE on GSB 2013 hatch
Mandy was found dead at the LaCrosse Wisconsin airport July 26, 2013
, likely from an aircraft strike.  She hatched 2013 and fledged June 17th - sort of an accidental - fludge - when she fell thru the opening between the nestbox and the perch.
All 4 fludged in 6 hours on June 17th, tormented and driven out by gnats / blackflies.

R.I.P. sweet child

LESSON LEARNED
Mandy flew across the river as a new fledgling.  She left her family right away.  
She fledged, learned lessons quickly from parents Michele and Travis, and vamoosed.

Sad



Mandy fludge - she was later seen on blufftop




Jonathon leaped off the side - toward the cliff




STOLT, the smallest male dropped thru the same opening as Mandy




Toni lost her grip
I saw her screaming (of course) on top of that same perch, and atop nestbox roof with sibling, so all 4 survived their fludge




July 28 I am sure I saw Toni  -screeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeming
