One individual is seen perched on the perch poll. No male is observed around the area. No chicks are evident.

Male and female are present though between the two sex is indistinguishable. One sits on the V perch and calls and the other is on the perch pole and remains silent. There is no noted feeding behaviors. No chicks are noted again this week

One individual noted upon first observation. No feeding behavior is observed. Individual has moved to V perch upon second observation. The third observation leads to the sighting of male and female present. Female is in the nest and male is on the perch pole. No chicks are noted throughout all of the observations.

First and secondary observations note male and female perched on the nearby perch poles. There are no visible chicks in the nest. Upon third observation, the female remains on her perch pole and the male has left the immediate area.

Male sits out by the perch pole. No individuals are seen upon second and third observations. No chicks have been noted to be visible.

Female flies in and male flies up from perch pole to join her in the nest. They appear to be feeding chicks. Upon secondary observation there is one unidentified individual in the nest. During the last round of observation, both the male and female fly off almost simultaneously. Female is silent while male calls in three short bursts until he reaches the opposite side of the marsh and is out of earshot.

Female sits in nest, male feeds on the feeding pole alone. Upon secondary observation male is gone and returns to the 'V' perch a few minutes later. Third observation shows both individuals perched on "V" perch. Suspected, but unconfirmed hatchlings.

Female sits alone in the nest. A male that is uncoupled sits on the opposite side of the marsh area (over the trail used by the observer) could be the mate to this female. Second observation notes female alone in nest with no male in the area. Third pass shows male perched on the "v" pole.

We have spotted at least on nestling in this nest! Stay tuned for more information :)

This nest is the largest in the park! Many years from a faithful couple. We have not seen any nestlings yet, but the nest is deep and Mama was sitting in it today!
