Thank you Maria. An unobstructed view is hard to obtain, but at 10-1/2 weeks they've now ventured just outside the nest and there is a very small "window".

There is no vegetation in front of the bird and the whole bird is more clearly seen in that photo; that is why I made the suggestion. The other shots are very nice, too!

Thank you.

Maria, I changed the order as you suggested. Curious, though, what would make that particular shot more viewable? Your feedback is appreciated.

Very nice spotting! You might want to consider putting the last photo first as you may get more views that way.
