Mother and child
I tracked one particular nest in the spring of 2010.
I am guessing that the twins here are just a few days old
Three weeks later they have at least tripled in size
and looking as hungry as ever.
Now at 5 weeks, one of the twins is missing.
There is no record of what happened to her.
at 6 weeks and looking pretty
At seven weeks this baby is ready to fly
When I returned in May, the nest was abandoned.
