disregard my 28 July post - it appears the nestlings had fledged before my visit and I did not find the fledglings in the area the day of my visit and assumed the nest failed. Dispelling my report is a story in the 2018 Tidewater Times Vol 67, No 4, pgs 27-41 relating an authors story of photographing activity at this nest site throughout the nesting season while his photographs clearly show this site fledged three nestlings
