As of May 15, thirty-six chicks have hatched! Some chicks look large and are already flapping their wings, and in other nests eggs are still incubating. So far eagles are flying by instead of attacking.
We have been so fortunate this season for photographers Kathleen Atkins and Aurora Santiago who have been visiting the colony regularly, documenting with their incredible photos. The images are inspiring, enlightening, and give us insight to the daily interaction of the chicks and their parents. You can see more of their photos at facebook.com/kathleen.atkins.photography and www.flickr.com/photos/santiagoa
