Female in nest. Male arrived within 10 minutes of monitoring brining fish to his mate. He flew off and stayed in the marshy grass within sight if nest. Hopeful...

Both male and female in nest. This nest is in the marsh. Low tide today and male sat in the grass for ten minutes watching nest. Both appear healthy

Juvenile last seen in nest on 9-15-14. Since this site is located 25 minutes away, don't get to check as often as others. Will be checking this week. Juvenile and an adult in the area-unknown if this is parent- are very active and healthy.
