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.
