First photo was on June 10. By June 17 only one chick was seen in the nest. The male was sporatic in returning with fish. Female would often leave the nest and fish for herself. June 20-21 massive storm with high wind and rain. (2 days of rain) June 22 No sighting of the remaining chick. June 23 Both adults are off the nest returning frequently, but for short periods of time. Obviously no chicks. June 23-July 18- Adults return about 2-3 times a day to sit for short periods of time on the nest. Can be heard nearby in the trees.
