We have two happy chicks in the nest this afternoon. It looks like Mom and Dad are doing a great job taking care of the chicks and making sure they have lots of fish to eat.
There was some concern yesterday when we couldn't see both chicks. It's hard to know if the second chick was simply hiding or if the third egg has hatched. We'll keep our fingers crossed that we'll soon see a third chick.
The temperature is currently in the mid 70s, but it will start heating up again on Friday and into next week. Fortunately, Mom is doing a great job of using her wings to provide some much needed shade for these chicks.
