Observed 18:52 to 19:10. 50% cloud cover, no precip. 1 adult perched near nest. At 19:07, unseen adult on nest flew off, and adult that was perched nearby flew onto nest to take over incubating. Judging by size, adult that flew off nest was likely male.

Observed 9:10 - 9:28. 100% cloud cover, no precip. Did not have binos on me, so difficult to see nest. Still need to find best parking spot for most ideal observation as well. At 9:24, adult came to nest with fish. Pretty certain male (breast appeared pretty white), and female was on nest for fish delivery. Lots of calling could be heard. At 9:26, the male flew down to lower level of tower.
