Well really I like all of the ones I watch but this pair (first nesting 2001) is kind of special. They will now be sending this pair of youngsters off into the world as their #13 & 14th. I have been able to get only partial band # on the female and I am sure she is a 1995 or 96 born bird. I viewed them from a long distance on Tuesday and just had such a great time watching in my telescope as I am about 700 feet away and most of the photos I did take were with the 500 + a 2X not your close photos but they tell me a story. Located in the rich bottomland where a river runs through with many trout and the dairy farm they live on grows all it’d feed for the year. First cutting in about a week and I may be able to get into a better position for some photos. If you were a fly fisherman this spot would send you spinning with joy. Anyway maybe in about 10 days those two up there will be making first flights and getting ready for a tough first few years. Lou PS the extras of the RWBB I could not resist as I really liked it and the young Mergansers were swimming right toward me when Mom gave out a yell and the water erupted with younguns. 1 Pop doing what he does best at a favorite roost.
