Based on the recent reports, it seems that the crows may have destroyed the eggs/chicks. While the adults stayed around and were seen as late as July 9th, they then appear to left the nest without any successful chicks. The best guess is that the eggs/young were destroyed by the crows about June 16th.

This nest was newly reported by Matt M. on 5/4/2020. We have no data on the arrival of the adults, egg laying, or start of incubation. All we know is that today, feeding behavior was observed at this nest. Our May 1 hatching is simply a guess so that we could record something to show activity at this nest.
