I arrived to check out the nest and to my surprise there was only one chick in the nest. The other one must have fledged since my last visit. Unable to tell if it the male or female in the nest. No sign of the adults.

This nest seemed to have produced two chicks. A male and a female. The chicks are about the size of the adults. Observed one adult delivering a small fish which the female chick immediately gobbled up. The male chick missed his chance. Also observed both chicks flapping their wings as though they were testing them out.

Found this one by accident. Observed two adults taking turns occupying the nest.
