2:00 p.m. This nest is difficult to observe. All of the places to safely pull off the road, which are far enough away to see into this high tower, are on private property. I managed to pull into a driveway for a garage-type building that seemed empty. Two adults were on the nest and the female was feeding. At first I saw two chicks but then a third appeared! I took a video that clearly shows this. This feeding was taking place after about an hour of rain showers. The male flew off the nest and away. After the feeding was over, the female perched on a strut above the nest and preened. In the photo, the third chick is lower, slightly behind, and to the right of its 2 siblings.

One adult was perched on a post close to the nest. I could not see if the mate was in the nest. I will keep an eye on this nest to see if I can determine whether or not there is a pair with eggs and if so if they are producing chicks.
