The nesting is almost over

After more than a month of nesting, almost 40 days to be exact… 40 days shared between the two parents relaying each other a few times each day, the couple will now be ready to do the commute to bring back food.  We spent more than 15 consecutive days in a 4’ X 4’ closed blind at 30 feet in the air wishing to see the mother seeing her youngsters for the first time and discarding the empty shells.  But it was done at night and we did not succeed.  But what a nice bird.   
Have a good day.  Louis
