Last weekend mom was still on her nest. Today the nest was empty except for some shell fragments. I went off in search of the hatchlings and finally located them all by themselves in a small bay. Ten minutes later the parents showed up. Here are a few from my encounter shot from my kayak....

Great set, Geoff. Looks like that is a glacier-fed bay.

Beauties Geoff. There appears to be an overwhelming green or gree. cast in the last two.

The green water and resulting green cast reflections are typical of glacier-fed lakes.

Very nice. Glad you were able to find some on the back. These actually look like 2 weeks old or so.

Thanks Tony, not sure what feeds these small lakes but they are often very turquoise in colour. They are very shallow also which contributes I think.

Thanks for the comments everyone.

To address the blue cast. I know in #4 that the cast was only on the underwing and the front breast seemed to be holding the whites properly so I left the blue. It is reflection from the turquoise water. Probably the same thing in #5 though I didn't notice the cast in that one. I will play around with the WB a bit more on those.

Mike, your comment got me thinking that it may have been the previous Wed that I checked the nest and not last Sat. I will have to check on that. However, I'm sure they are no older than 1.5 weeks.
