Just Can't Get Enough

In an amazing stroke of luck there are two nests this year.  These images are in chronological order so they tell a bit of a story.  This nest is behind septa tracks, protected by a fence, and pretty high up.  You can see when I arrived they took a look but then went right back to eating something that was already in the nest when I got there.  After a while mom (or dad??) flew off and returned to settle next to the nest with a nice big rabbit.  She sat there for a bit with it on the branch while the chicks moved as far right in the nest as they could.  Then she flew off with the rabbit for a bit, but not for too long.  She came back to the nest and everyone resumed happily eating.  These guys seem to be getting lots of good food.
