Leaving the Nest

Shiloh, Tennessee

Mom leaves the nest after dropping off a small fish for the hungry brood. They are in the "starvation" period, where the parents don't bring much to the nest, to encourage them to fledge.
Mom brought a fish by the nest yesterday, let the kids smell it, and flew off to an adjacent tree. No takers..yet. It won't be long...
