      Thanks! If you’re on Facebook or Instagram I’ve posted a whole series of photos showing them feeding as well as video of them a little older as fledglings poking their heads out begging for food. I’ve been watching the nest for several months and got to see the parents building it. I’m @jayspeidell on both platforms.

Sorry, comment time is over.
