The parents were both close to the nest tonight and had their hands full with a pair of Blue Jays. The adult male, who spends time near the Boat Basin Café has been difficult for me to find when he goes south. But tonight the Blue Jays made it easy to find him. I suspect these Blue Jays will help us find the fledglings in a few days!
The kids relaxed and rested, with brief spurts of activity. One of them found a new perch on the south side of the nest. I didn't see any feedings tonight, but I suspect the eyasses were fed before I arrived. The fledge window starts tomorrow. I suspect we'll have at least one of the eyasses fledging by Friday.
If you thought watching hawks on a nest was fun, wait until you get to watch young fledglings. You haven't seen anything yet!
