Nesting Diaries

10:40a.m. I drove down a dirt lane off of Mt Hermon Rd that ended at the base of the tower. I saw an adult fly off the tower and heard vocals as I was about halfway to the tower. From part way down the dirt road, I could see the nest on the northwest corner of the tower, but could see no bird on the nest. From the base of the tower looking up, I got a different perspective on the nest and also realized that the tower was very close to route 80. As I was driving back out the dirt road, I saw the adult land on the tower again. According to the map, Frontage Rd parallels route I-80 to the north so I drove there and through very dense foliage, could see the tower and the adult perched on it, but could not really see the nest or its occupants any better. From the behavior of the perched adult, it would seem that this nest has a pair and maybe they have eggs/chicks. I will check again soon.
