Hi Ed

Great stuff!!!!!

Maybe sometime in the next couple of years, I'll actually find a nest and have the good fortune to see a hatch . . . but probably not. . .

That little guy sure has some big feet!

He looks so lonely just waiting for his siblings to hatch. Are mom and dad around to feed him?

Thanks for sharing this experience with us. It's a lovely site.

Amazing captures! It is interesting how camouflaged the hatchlings are (as were the eggs)...nature at its best!

I'm amazed that you've been able to follow this nest so well! The pictures are so much fun.
