these guys seem fully fledged now. they're still hanging around. one was actually not even near the nest and appeared to be hunting andi can't find one of them.
mom is still incubating the other nest..

Nice, interesting to see how they grow up from babies to full grown birds. Can they fly yet?

i've seen one fly about 10meters, 30'. one other about 12'. luckily they hardly pay attention to me. i'd try to get some clearer shots but it's been raining AGAIN and it's a swamp out there. not a good time for a mono/tripod. i have a hard enough time just standing up.

i'm on the bank. it's an old cattle pond. water is 6-8' deep. these were shot with a M200f4 from 35-50' distance.
sorry about the blur but i guess it's not my day.

Nice shots, those birds are still not as good looking as they should be, possibly why they are not going out in public yet.

Can't believe they are getting to be so independent - it's been fun to watch them grow up. Will they spend the summer hanging around the nest before taking off for the winter?

as much as it's been raining here, i'm surprised i've gotten anything. we average (?) 25'' a year. at this time we are at 27.5''.. this does not sound bad unless the water run off affects you as it does here.
