After 5 years, we have a full nest again, and this time it’s on my side of the lake. Here’s the best shot I’ve gotten yet of the biggest of at least three nestlings. They may be small, but their voices are mighty. When they’re hungry, the whole world knows.
I took this video yesterday right after the parent landed. You can hear the immediate calls for instant feeding. The parent, however, is nonplussed, and takes their time coughing up the fish. And yes, I really do mean coughing it up.
