Male seen resting in nest today. Quite early in the season. Maybe will head north. I'll keep eye out for him. Winter has been too warm.

1700 - Two adults and the hatchling being well cared for.

Around 1300 today one adult and the small hatchling (smallest of all the UD nests I observed today) were active. The second adult arrived a short time later. All look well. The hatchling is small and looking fragile. Hopefully will put on more weight soon.

Two adults were there when observed today. Female was feeding one small hatchling. No sign of a second during several minutes of observation.

I don't observe this nest as much as #3. Based on the positioning of the adults (similar to #3), I think hatching has occurred.

Interesting note. There is a nest very close on the USCG range beacon. Their posture as well indicates hatching.

Nesting pair seen and the nest is under renewed building. Today was the first siting of the pair. I drive by 2x/day.
