*8 Young are fed by regurgitation. They are aggressive and demand more, so the adults must flee

Thanks, Hung. There has been so much habitat loss locally, it is remarkable how adaptable these birds can be. This rookery is surrounded by tract homes and city streets, andhas been active for several summers -- even though it is in a public place, most people are doing other things and are oblivious to it (they can see the birds, but may not know what they are doing)and since it is so vulnerable to disturbance, I hesitate to post its location on the open internet where people who are not interested in the welfare of the birds can find it. It is about done for this year, anyway. Email me if you want the location.
