Arrived down the shore on 3/16/13 - first observed both male and female perching around nest then female on 4/20/13 was laying low in nest, appeared to be nesting an egg. Daily I have observed mating. As of today 4/25/2013 female has been low in nest. Do not know how many eggs,as the nest is too high to see from were I stand, but I know at least one egg.

Observance of nest from 3/24/13 to 3/29/13 shows the pair at nesting platform and also on a bunch of tree branches a distance from the platform inwards towards the bay to the right of platform. As I left Margate on 3/29/13 observed Male eating on a piling near a nest platform across from Williams Island near the metal crossbar heading out of Margate on Margate Blvd. I will be returning to Margate on 4/9/13 for a period of 3 weeks.
