No individuals are in the nets. Nest material amount remains constant. Two individuals are noted soaring very high up in the sky.

Marked boat traffic in the area may have an effect on presence of individuals in vicinity of the nest. There is no noted increase of nesting material

Nesting material has increased again, but not dramatically. There is one particularly large piece of plastic that is hanging off the front of the nest, which worries the observer.

The amount of nesting material has not markedly increased. There are no calling, perched, or soaring individuals in the area.

Marked increase of nesting material. Almost looks as good as other nests in the park. There are at least two trash bags that were brought in as nesting material that are clearly visible from far away. No individuals were observed in the area, however distant calling from the tree line is noted.

More nesting material is being added, and no individuals are present at the start of the observation. After a few minutes two individuals are seen soaring, though not in tandem. One flies over the bay to the left of the nest while one soars in the area.

Nesting material is in the process of being added to the new nest box. Though sparse, the amount is significantly more than observed previously. Red-winged Black Bird seen perched on the perch pole. No individuals were noted in the surrounding area.

Two individuals crudely seen in the morning area observed during a seining activity. No individuals are seen during the afternoon observation. No sign of perched or soaring individuals in the area.

No nest built in this location. No individuals seen in the immediate area, possibly due to filming interference.
