This pair got a late start - new or young pair perhaps? - so it's difficult to tell when eggs were laid. Incubation observed 5/9/17.

By 7/17, two chicks had fledged. However, another observer saw one injured by the roadside, and when we went to check today it was gone. We're assuming it was one of those first fledglings. We are now reporting that this nest lost a chick, so two remain, one not yet fledged as of 7/18.

Although I can't see a chick, the parent birds are showing feeding and nurturing activity. They are much more active than when just incubating.
