Thanks, we will be checking in on it periodically.  Do you know how long it takes for them to get their color

According to www.wild-bird-watching.com and www.audubon.org, after the young have hatched, it takes between 10-14 days for them to leave their nest. If it is a female, it will be brown with dark stripes, but if it is a male, it will turn black with red wing patches (however, it will be a little browner than a breeding adult male).
