Above: Toby Burke, from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, places the bird back in its nest from the end of the C.E.S. truck. One of their firefighters brought the bird up to Burke in a pet carrier.
The chick, at left, and its sibling shared a meal brought by a parent shortly the truck pulled away. “I’d say it was a success,” Clark said. Carrol Martin said this was the third year the birds built a nest and that they had troubles with it each year.
