Looks like one chick and they've planted a garden?!??

Per Ben, two eggs were collected from this stand today.

Nesting pair, doesn't appear there is a chick as of today.

These two arrived today!

All three were easily seen today as we floated by this morning. Another good size chick. I can see this stand from our turret, haven't seen him helicoptering off of the nest yet, but by his size, I'd think it would be soon!

These two were here in 2014. They build a nice nest...NO TRASH...at least from a rocking boat. We'll have to check back in the upcoming weeks to see if they have young ones. Forked River now has 3 stands fairly close to each other, but all three are inhabited this year!

Floated by this one today. At one point it was occupied but this spring it's remained empty.

It appears that the pair in this stand #3355 are now building a nest in stand #4808.

This nest and nest #4808 are close together. Trying to determine if we have two sets of birds in each nest or one pair using both nests. More to come....see #4808 for further details.
