Arrived at the nest to find everyone gone. Both chicks have now fledged. Will continue to check in to see if anyone still visits before leaving for the season.

Lots of activity at this nest. Finally got to see the young. When I arrived, 1, the female was on a pillar of the tower. Soon, her brother flew in also. Listened in to quite the conversation between them. The "boy" flew off again, and she flew to another pillar. Dad came in with a food drop - small. He sat on a pillar under the nest platform. The boy came back. I don't think there was much left to eat from Dad's small drop. About 30 minutes later, Mom flew in with a great catch! There was lots of excitement and noise, as Mom dropped the fish into the nest where the "girl" was waiting. The boy couldn't get turned around and off the pillar fast enough. Things quieted down as the two siblings ate. Mom took off, to check out me below. She made a couple low passes, vocalizing, looking straight down on me. I think she was giving Dad a hard time about his baby sitting skills. HA She settled down, accepted my presence, and everyone went about their business. What a privilege to watch this family!

Secured permission from land owners to observe this nest from their property. Male was on a lower pillar eating a fish. Female flew in with a fish in her talons. She flew into the nest presumably to feed young. Heard lots of vocalizing but could not get a visual on young. She flew off at one point, circled overhead and returned to the nest.

Hard to get a good angle to observe this nest. There is a hedgerow of trees in front. A nest is visible at the top level of the tower on the right side. No birds were observed. Will go back for another visit.
