I can't help "crowing" about the good news.  This is from Steve

     "In case you have not hear, both the eggs at nest 2000 # 1
     hatched.  The first on 16 March the second 18 March.  Marty saw
     both chicks earlier this week.  Steve Schwikert and I met Marty
     there yesterday and watched the birds for about 90 minuets.  Though
     we never say the chicks (they are sticking tight to the marsh) they
     were as attentive as any sandhill chicks I've ever watched."
