Broad-billed on her nest and feeding young

by Dan Weisz

Here’s my first attempt.  This shot was from last night and the others from this morning.  I arrived around 7:05.  She was off the nest and returned about 8-10 minutes later.  After buzzing around to check me out, she settled back into her nest and her duties.  

The baby on the right was fed first, and then the one on the left

Going deep.  You can see how red/orange the underside of her bill is and also see how “broad” the bill is.

Both young are fed and settled down.

And mom begins to warm them up again.
