I had the fortune to watch a nest of these guys back in San Diego. I"m so glad they have made their way north so I can enjoy them in Oregon year round

Absolutely wonderful! Both the pictures and videos were lovely to see. Thanks for sharing!

What i thought was awesome is the fact that we can actually see the LIQUID which she is regurgitating to feed the babies . We can see liquid when she is preening their necks. What fascinates is that she has the capacity to regurgitate to different kinds of fluid. One for feeding and one for preening!
