Two chicks are present and active in the nest. We first noticed an egg set to the side of the nest on Mothers Day, May 10th. Fitting! The other hatched several days later. One is larger than the other. THe larger of the two is gray/black in color. the smaller is a light brown. Whe visible they tend to lay flat with wings out to their sides lifting their heads on when feeding.

Seems to be more activity around the two eggs from both parents. There is a lot of shuffling around of the twigs directly adjacent to the eggs themselves. Over the past couple weeks the nest has been built up around the edges. The newer material has leaves and buds giving the nest a much greener appearance than before.
