This nest has been very active. March 4th had the female sitting on the nest while the male "fished" for lunch, sharing his catch with his lady friend.

On the evening of Feb. 28th the male and female were sitting in the nest tree. The first photo shows the pair on a branch, upper left... the nest is lower right. They've done quite a bit of work over the past week.
