Same as last week. The male and female are in the nest and nesting waiting for the young to arrive. This time the female was incubating with the male perched next to her.

01/20/2016 by Jack Silberman
The male and female are still at this nest. This time the male was incubating with the female perched next to him. This is the first time we've seen eggs hatched in this location. The nest has also been developed a little more than last week and the pair is clearly ready to have chicks.

01/13/2016 by Jack Silberman
There is a pair of birds on the platform with a fairly well developed nest. Neither birds are in incubating positions. Male and a female are clearly nesting in this location.
