I'm thinking this is a young bird. Three years ago I witnessed a male building a nest on an electrical pole near the Taco Bell and CVS in the fall. The following spring, we had a storm and the nest burned. The next year, after a platform had been install

This is also nest #259. Successful this year. Funny in that either the female or a female baby is STILL there. . . attached to the nest.
Activity in the nest again this year! Last year, one of the fledglings was either pushed out or fell out of the nest and was hit by a car!
Haven't noticed any activity yet this season.
This is the same nest as #259 being observed by Daytona Dave. I'll keep an eye on his updates and I continue to drive by this nest and see what's happening.
I am so excited. After three long years, this nest is finally a success! The month of April, everyone was hunkered down, so I wasn't sure what was going on. Then in May I began to see movement -- both parents at the nest, and now, for the past week, at least one baby up there. The parents keep fixing the nest. I'm catching them bringing sticks and twigs.
Hoping that this year is the first full successful season with this nest!
