Nesting Diaries

06/18/2012 by Hannah
This nest was occupied for several years. Near by land clearing drove the pair away. Last year(2011) a pair returned and nested. Early this year (2012) a pair began nesting, recently the nest was further fortified. Not sure of exact dates and can't tell how many chicks are in the nest. Can only observe it from the ground. The adults guard it carefully, diving on anyone who approaches!
