We have two chicks this year. For the last couple of weeks, they have been standing up in the nest and more recently spreading their wings. Last week, I noticed that they have been flying and perching on our Whaler abotu 25 feet from the nest

We had one chick this summer, down from 3 last summer. They left in mid-September.

We have been watching closely but still can't see any eggs. Mom is certainly acting like she is on a clutch, but no visual proof yet.

Heard the first chirps of spring last week and spotted the first bird in the platform on 3/14. I haven't seen the second bird yet nor much nest building activity. Just lots of fishing so far. This seems earlier than last summer, but wasn't tracking as closely.
