The rule book says 35 days is the absolute earliest. Usually more in the 37-44 day range with the boys going first.

So...

Please do we have a Fledge Watchers' schedule set up for this year?   And when is the first date we can realistically expect one of them to fledge?   Although watching them wandering around the perimeter, I worry that one could fall off sooner than expected!   I'm remembering that Sacajawea's first excursion was more of a fall than a fledge, and that she walked around a lower level of the Kodak tower for quite a while before she was able to fly back up to the nest box!

Moved to the appropriate topic.

An official watch schedule has not been published. However, this is what we expect:
