Impossible to see into nest from the road but adult bird has still been seen perched near nest and nesting material seems to be added to.

This nest has never been successful to my knowledge but there is a pair there again.

I have not seen any birds on the nest for some time. Same as last year, they seem to come in and occupy nest for awhile then abandon it.

This nest is in a plastic dish near a electric station very close to the road. It is very difficult to see into the nest. Two birds were seen together on the nest earlier this week.

I was able to see one of the birds on the nest yesterday for the first time in awhile. Can't tell the status of the nest.

Have not observed any activity on this nest for some time now. Not sure what happened.

There have been birds on the nest but due to the location it is almost impossible to see what is going on.

Birds have been seen coming and going but it's almost impossible to see what is going on in the nest due to the placement of the structure.

One bird has been seen on the nesting platform. Because of the placement of the platform so close to the side of the road, it is very difficult to make observations.
