Observed today. The nest is flat and all are gone. I assume the nestling has fledged.

Observed this a.m. There is one large chick in the nest. While I was in the Money Point marsh and well over 200 feet away, the adult female flew from the nest 3 or 4 times and buzzed me, talons down, giving those grating alarm calls. She'd spotted me and obviously considered me a threat.

Have observed a # of times since 4/08. Female is always hunkered down. One time, though, male and female switched off, and male brooded eggs. Today, observed male bring a long rope to the nest. So, nest-building continues. Hatchlings due soon, I expect.

Was showing Laura Mae around the Kinder Morgan property and Elizabeth River Project restoration site when we spotted this platform and occupied nest. We observed one of the birds bringing nesting material to same. The 2 birds we saw could be the same birds that abandoned the "boom nest" just downriver.
