FOUR chicks in one nest. Fence keeps them safe and protected. 5/24

Driving in by the Jerry’s Pond bus stop and looking northwest by the fence (at water hole), I saw both nests full of chicks straight across the water. It seemed they were standing on a tightrope. So wiry little things and quite agile.

You have to come from the COncord Av. direction, so you can turn right on RIndge Av. and then very soon left into the large bus stop area just AFTER the Pond. Go to the end by a pool of water outside the Pond and look through the fence, there are no obstructing branches. Unreal how much action with them.
