This nest, built out of moss was on a steep cliff next to a series of rapids near the Akamina road to Cameron Lake.  There were three chicks nearing fledgling age that somehow managed to stay within the nest while extending their heads out to get fed by their parents.  The two adults fed these chicks every 5-10minutes and tended to the nest.  The fecal sacks produced by the chicks were removed by the parents and dropped into the rapids to wash them away.
