All three chicks were present. Growing nicely. Very photogenic. One of my favorite to shoot. Chicks are more active and usually can get an angle to see them. Male is always close by within every 10 minutes. See him eating at end of day. Female left the nest to shoo away a seagull bothering the male while he ate.

Sunset on Donna's nest last night revealed the 3 chicks I had suspected. So happy but pending hurricane tomorrow has me worried for all my chicks. I hope they have an instinct for keeping low.

This nest I have been watching for a while. Since it's so well known I thought it would already be registered. I believe that there are more than one chick but will wait for proof.
