Nesting Diaries

3:15 PM- I observed the nest for about 2 ½ hours today. Initially I saw one adult in the nest. About 20 minutes later another adult carrying a fish arrived and landed on the nest, must have been the male. He then took off with the fish, circled the nest, dropped the fish on the shore and then perched on a nearby tree branch and remained there for at least 30 minutes and then flew off. The other adult in the nest did not at anytime move from the nest which I imagine is the female. The male returned about 35 minutes later soaring around the lake and in a time span of about 15 minutes made 3 dives into the lake unsuccessfully trying to catch a fish. I had to leave so I don’t know if he ever caught any fish.
