Sure enough, there it was... light wasn't great, as it was late in the afternoon - after 6 PM - but I did manage a few keepers as a consolation prize. Here are a couple...

Dad flew in, disappeared into the nest, then poked his head out for a look around before departing...

I like both shots. They are unique in their own way.
