I think this was the youngest baby at the rookery. You could just barely make out the baby’s head at the bottom of mom’s beak.
Most of the other nests had babies that were pretty grown up. For some reason these guys were wet and dirty. Dad must have brought back some wet dirty moss to replensh the nest.
Moms were busy tending to the nests and babies all over the tiny island in the middle of this neighborhood pond.
Looks like this Mom had only one baby. Some had two or three.
Zooming in, these guys were all white and fluffy.
