Photos of this nest
recently seen a week ago the parent covering the nest/nestlings from the sun with her wings. Appeared to be two babies. this week again I see them in the nest but can only see one standing in the nest. and hour later the parent is shading them from the sun.

no activity at the Pickle Ball nest. an hour later I observed they both are on the nest.
the nest weathered the storm with some stick loss. workers are cleaning the courts. the pair flew off nest consequently.
this pair is dedicated to this site on an old wooden utility pole in a Pickle Ball court but they are not building up the nest! strange. will see if it progresses.
