The nest was destroyed by someone- they placed a traffic cone up there to keep the birds off of it. Sad to see them gone. It wasn't hurting anything. It was just a box for security cameras.

I first observed this nest the third week of May. It looked like it was still under construction.

There is a lot of activity. One bird stays while the other goes out looking for food or nesting materials.
