This nest has been observed in previous years but not reported. Today there were two birds on the nest. One (male?) left shortly after observations began. The other bird remained on the bird, calling repeatedly, especially when a Turkey Vulture soared nearby. At one point, the foraging bird actively chased a Turkey Vulture from the area. Young were not seen but clearly nest defense was occurring. It is hoped that staff and students at the SeaCamp Education Center will monitor this nest.
