There was activity here at the beginning the season but I have not observed much since the COVID outbreak. On one occasion it looked like a pair had claimed the nest. In this area there was a lot of competition / territorial behavior for the prime nest spots.

My first time over to this side of campus to see this platform. It is occupied. One young head was popping up during my 5 minutes observing. I will check periodically.
