Frustrated that when I crop a picture to make the nest clearer, it then appears after upload turned on its side. :-[

Pair is still building this nest. This channel marker in Locklies creek has had a nest for 7-8 years. The Coast Guard repositioned the triangles so there would not be a big opening in which nesting materials could be stacked. Nests on channel markers are less stable now, and the 3 nests on markers in this creek were quite sparse - last year they had lots of nest material.
