They were back at it as I arrived at the nest today.

I'm really curious as to whether or not they have eggs in the nest. Since they seemed to arrive late this spring, I hope they do have a few chicks. That would make the parents go fishing and I enjoy photographing them coming back to the nest with fish.

Here's a larger image:

Excellent sharpness and detail in the larger image! Great behavior as well bringing the limb to the nest. A great series, Mike!

Thanks Ron.

Like I said, I'm looking forward to their having some chicks to feed. I hope that happens in the next few weeks.
