AERO is still using the nest as home base and will continue to do so until he migrates in September.  His mother will leave first on her long flight south, while the father will remain behind to help Aero with meals. The father
will migrate about the same time as Aero, which will be a few weeks after the mother leaves.  All but the southernmost breeding populations in North America are migratory, vacating their breeding grounds in late summer for rain-forest rivers and fish-rich seacoasts and lakes of Central and South America.
