I wish people would not assume that no-news is bad-news. The river has fallen over a foot since it crested, but it is still quite high and it will likely be next week before we can get to the building by the nest and attempt to restore power.
With that said, I was able to see Rudy this morning sitting on the dead tree about 50 yards to the west of the nest tree. I did not see either parent while I was there, but I am confident that both of them are just fine. Lots of other birds in the area...geese...herons...pelicans. I know it is hard to tell that this is Rudy from the pictures, but I was able to see him more closely with my binoculars and I can confirm it was him.
I hope you all have a great week!
