The nest is hard to observe now that the leaves are open on the smaller ash trees that reach to nest level. The adults are able to perch on branches of the nest tree allowing them attend to the chick and observe their surroundings.  The chick’s feathers are now mostly brown and it can be seen testing its wings with vigorous flapping.
