Re: JAN 03 2013 Both parents observed tending to young
I left the PP nest area to go to lunch. When I returned (around 2:10 PM) , I observed the same behavior Ken described except after about 20 minutes an adult flew in and sat with the other parent for about 5 minutes. He (I think) then moved to a vertical branch of the tree quite close to the nest. He then flew to a power line near the nest.
I have some pictures but have not prepared them for posting. Maybe later today, I will be able to get them posted.
