These two youngsters are soooooo photogenic!  Cap ops, thank you so much for staying on "the job" during ATF.

Morning foggy, so hard to tell for sure but I think one parent and one youngster were in a creek tree just as the area began to lighten up, about 6:00.  Then one DN flew to the nest, followed shortly by the other.  They waited for breakfast, which by 11:30 posting time has not appeared. By about 9AM both were gone from the nest.

Been watching ATF events from the Decorah site, both live and on rewind. Great stuff to learn.  When it's over, hope someone posts some photos of the audience with who's who!

Pics from later this afternoon at the DNN nest.

Did we miss a feeding today?  Kiddos are hanging around the nest, waiting.

CHANCE fledged this morning.  It was a beautiful take off from the box.

Two food drops at the nest so far today for the DNs, one fish by MrN about 9 AM and the next by DNF at about 10AM, not sure what but not fish.  Catch the rewind for best action.

Here's pics of the 10:00 feed.
DN13 has learned how to eat from a log or branch. Tricky stuff. DN14 is just figuring out that skill.
