Nesting Diaries

Parents left earlier in August. Both chicks were around for several weeks, now appears to be one left.

Started to see an empty nest a few days ago; both chicks are now flying around!

Chicks are growing up so fast. Plus the pair nested very early so they are way ahead of other local nests. The chicks are almost as big as their parents (per new pic).

Actually there are 2 chicks visible in the latest photo!

So far have only seen one chick and he's getting bigger. See photo.

First sighting of a nestling yesterday! See photo.

Starting to see the female move around in the nest more, with her head bent down, so looks like hatching has begun. Then she goes back to incubation.

04/12/2020 by lost_bird
Looks like the female may be incubating, she's on the nest all the time lately.

03/21/2020 by lost_bird
Possible sighting of the male on 3/20. Then by 3/21 both birds had arrived and gotten to work on the nest!
