pair was at end of walkway platform for the 2018 season but lost their chicks just before fledgling most likely to a great horn owl attack. they built a frustration nest mid summer 2018 and are back and incubating eggs on a new spindly snag along gut near channel. The pair from 2018 Villas has moved in to this pairs platform at end of walkway. "As the nests Turn"
