Nesting Diaries

Driving through Yellowstone's Lamar Valley, heard the female calling while driving and pulled off to watch. Two fledglings were attempting their first flight. They waited for a wind to come through the gully and the mother took off as the fledglings observed and tried to imitate, flapping their wings and jumping. They ultimately declined the opportunity that night. The male appeared out of nowhere to help the female fight off some observing ravens no doubt looking to bring down the fledglings.
