Male standing at the edge of the nest, and at least one chick present. Chick(s) are small but saw wing stretching from one.

04/08/2017 by kmnoonan
Male is standing on the light structure that the nest is on and the female is standing in nest. Lots of vocalizing but unable to tell if it was coming from the female or a chick, seemed shrill like a chick call. While I was observing, the male flew off.

03/19/2017 by kmnoonan
Male on nearby light pole eating fish, and (assumed) female's head just visible in the nest.

03/12/2017 by kmnoonan
Male on pole that nest is on, and (assumed) female sitting low in the nest. While observing, the male flew over to sit in the nest.
