I just happened to notice this nest as I was driving across the bay on the Causeway this afternoon. I had seen the platform there last year but with no nest at all. I'm happy to see that it is now occupied and this might explain the "fourth bird" I've noticed hunting from the light poles on the I10 Bayway this summer. The other three are the male and female from the Bankhead nest and their wing-flapping hatchling.
