Found a nest the other day, stopped by today to check on progress of the occupants. Momma flew off the nest at first but returned shortly after checking me out. Weather was horrible, a little snow, cloudy, windy and cold. Cant wait for the babies! These images are pretty bad, but hopefully get some better ones as I follow the brood.

Nice find Dave, ya the weather doesn't help at times. But you still managed some shots.

They choose their nests well for making it tough to get access. Good job.

Thanks Budcam and John, I'm just establishing my present right now, hopefully I'll have some better pics soon.

A great find, Dave. As ubiquitous as they are, it seems they are rarely encountered.

Thanks Al and Bob, weather has been uncooperative here, I've been to the nest but too windy, hopefully we'll lose this wind soon, been blowing for a couple weeks now.
