Hi Peter,

Glad that the bird got back to the nest.  Do you know if it was fed 
during its time out of the nest?  Didn't know about CSp but have 
certainly seen several other species feeding young that fell out of the 
nest a bit early - most recently a Yellow-faced Honeyeater in the garden.

We also had a C. Sparrowhawk nest in our yard but didn't find it until 
after the two young birds had just left the nest about three weeks ago.  
I am enjoying watching the the aerial displays of the young and their 
parents every evening recently - superb.
