Still no adults sighted in the vicinity and no activity around the nest. We will continue to observe in hopes that the young chicks are just out of sight.
We sat and monitored for nearly 45 minutes today and saw no activity and heard nary a sound. Our fear is that the nest has been raided and that it is now abandoned. We will continue to watch and monitor closely.
Still can't see within nest and am unsure just when eggs hatched. However, mother's behavior has definitely changed and both adults are going back and forth between nest and James River.
Adult pair have returned and are rebuilding the nest. Its close proximity to the parkway has caused them to both be very shy of parked cars or of casual observation.
