No birds noticed during today's outing. I plan to observe later and longer next time so see if nest is done for the year.
No birds evident on the nest after on/off again observation for 45-60 min. Chick has fledged in the last week.
Chick (near fledgling) and adult on the nest when I arrived. Adult flew off shortly thereafter. Chick remained on nest. Observed from different vantage points for nearly and hour and no signs of wanting to fly.
No birds or chicks visible today. I observed off and on for about an hour. I went out about noon today vs. my typical 5-6pm.
The one chick was by itself. There was no sign of the adults, but the chick was up and alert.
Observed one adult and one chick. The chick is getting dark with light/golden head. Not large enough to fledge. Appeared chick was eating.
Both adults observed on the nest. No chicks were visible this trip. One adult was feeding.
First Observation Date. One adult and two nestlings visible. Feeding at the time.
