The parents usually fly over head a couple times and then settle down on a branch above the nest, frequently looking down into the nest. I have kept all visits short so far since I know the eaglets are small and most likely the parents are still brooding them.

On one of my trips down to the river I could see from the Lock and dam area a large gathering of White American Pelicans and Cormorants at the end of Ellis Island. I drove over to the trail head and started out hiking it, hoping that they would still be there. To my delight they were still there, the Cormorants, American White Pelicans, a couple Ring-billed Gulls and a Caspian Tern. I caught some videos and photos of this large group of water birds socializing while preening, sunning, and bathing.

Here is the video I made from my recordings.

If you check out the video you can see all the activity going on with these beautiful birds. Watch for one that has a wound on its lower bill pouch.

The one Pelican has an orange-brown underparts from lying on the shallow bottom of the river.
