The three chicks are vigorous and fledging. Florence and Harvey are very attentive to their young and to each other. They bring a variety of fish from the bay and ocean, including large flounder!

Florence & Harvey appear to be caring very well for their three young chicks, Warren, Catch, & DQ (three local Fenwick Island restaurants young Trimble family members work at this summer). It was very hot for days after the chicks hatched, and here you see Dad Harvey tending to the chicks as Mom Florence cools off nearby.
