Update on the polygyny case...the last chick has fledged! So the male that produced six chicks at two nests was successful! It's amazing. I am watching the littlest chick flying loops, sticking his landings and food begging. There he goes on another loop around his home territory. He flies low and barely misses things...makes me nervous, but he made it back to the nest with one of his siblings. What I am not seeing, is the male or the third chick. The chicks are food begging, so the female just took off. Did she go to get a fish or to get the male????
