My brother locate this nest in a dead pine snag. After learning that it was an active nest, he notified me, and we observed the nest for several weeks. When it became obviouse that there were young, I started imaging the nest. This image represents two of three young. Here the male is supplying food to the young. Happy to say that all the young fledged.
