Adorable birdies

Remember the adorable young scrub jays who were nested by my bedroom window? Two days ago I couldn't find them, and I haven't seen them since then. It seems that they have flown the coop.

To begin with I was shocked, but then I learned on Wikipedia that scrub jays leave the nest just eighteen days after they've hatched. When I discovered the youngsters they were already venturing beyond the nest. They didn't look like they would be ready to fly away anytime soon, but I guess I was mistaken.
