We have seen one or two adult heads in this nest off and on over the spring and early summer. It is too high to see whether there are any nestlings, but the continuous occupation, until very recently, would indicate they were there.

Pair on nest, one flew off and circled around and appeared to copulate (or attempt copulation, it was only a few seconds) when it returned.
