David L. reports: I dropped by my nest yesterday and noticed that the female was still standing in the nest and very talkative to her mate on the nearby branch. She flew around to stretch her wings and quickly returned to the nest. I don't think there's any eggs yet.

David L reports: I found the female standing in the nest and the male on a branch close by. The property owner where the nest is located said she knew they had returned when bits of animal parts started landing in her driveway.
