Amazing, thanks for sharing. In case we don't go back often enough, I hope someone posts when the eggs hatch so we can see the young ones also. This is really cool.

Me, too! I got to see the one that has already hatched for a few moments when momma moved. Soooooooo adorable. It opened it's little mouth when Daddy (I am assuming momma/daddy, lol) almost completely stepped on the little thing!!! Be careful daddy!!!

Cool. I looked at the nest through a telescope a year ago when riding over there. But that doesn't compare to this close up.
