The adult is probably hoping as much as the juveniles. When the other adult returns to the nest this one can finally leave to hunt.

In a short time both adults will be gone hunting at the same time.

Since both chicks are about equal in size between the 2 of them they may be able to fend off any attacks that happen while alone.

Looking at the different nests I can already see where several have lost a chick.

    1. Thank you. This rookery has many nests, Herons, Egrets, even Anhinga. Some trees have 5 – 6 nests. Pretty soon the green leaves will start to hide everything though.
