There was no nest here when we visited in mid-March, but on 7/14 we saw an adult arrive at the nest with a big fish, and then fly to a nearby perch where it sat eating the fish. One bird perched above it appeared to be a recent fledgling, appeared to be begging for food from the adult. Another bird in the nest appeared to be another near-fledgling. We watched for about 30 min as the adult kept tearing at the fish, but we could not stay longer to see if it ever then went to either youngster.

This is the second year this nest has been occupied. Last year there were two separate broods. This year there is only one brood, but time will tell!
