Nesting Diaries

Fiberglass dish had fallen and been dangling for a couple of years. Took a bit of legwork to find the right contacts and a bit of paperwork to get permission to go in an fix this, the pole needed replacement too. This nest is located at a Superfund Site (hazardous waste materials dump). There are a number of platforms on the site, perhaps as mitigation at one point, no one seems to know, but no one is maintaining them or monitoring them. It is sort of weird.
