Using the Levels Pallette I reset the lighting levels to Input: 12, 1.22, and 191.

Copied the right side of the background and pasted it onto the left side, flipped it horizontally and placed it so it overlapped the original left edge, then used a soft brush to erase part of the overlap and merge the two edges naturally. Merge layers and save.

I just increased the highlights a bit for more brightness, and lightened the midtones to bring out the details in the trees and mountains, then increased the darks for just a touch more contrast. I hope you like.

I made two copies of the image and used Levels to lighten the midtones on the bottom copy until I could see the details on the shadowed parts of the bird. Then I erased the bird on the top copy so the lightened bird showed through but the sky and leaves remained the same. The face still looked too dark, so I used the Dodge tool to lighten it some more.

I liked this shot because of the Heron in the background.

I straightened the horizon and cropped a wee bit, increased the Contrast and clicked once on Sharpen.

As you can see, the nest is very unassuming. No one walking past would give it a second look, or suspect that it might contain eggs or baby birds. I plan to go back occasionally to monitor this spot, and hopefully I will be lucky enough to see the fledgelings before they fly away.

I increased the highlights using Levels, then decreased the yellow using Color Balance. It is all a matter of taste of course, but I hope you like it.
