Nest Location Description: This appears to be a first year nest located straddled across the cross arms of a power pole that also has two transformers attached. The power pole is directly below the dam creating Weber Reservoir, and only a few feet north of the Walker River as it leaves the reservoir. This is on the Walker River Paiute Reservation.

008/03/19 A friend birding the area told me about this nest on Friday, 08/02/19. This appears to be a first year nest, and no nest had been reported at this location before. When I arrived this morning (a 100 mile trip one way) the female was busy feed ing three chicks, and the male was perched on a nearby power pole. This is a popular fishing site, and two men wee very close to the nest but the birds did not appear to care. I parked on the dam itself, giving an almost level view of the nest. My guess is that the chicks will leave the nest in about two weeks, so will count the three as this season's success.
