12:15 p.m. Two big chicks were on this tall nest together. No parents were seen. As with other chicks in this area, these chicks will be fledging very soon.

3:30 p.m. On my way from checking nests in the Milford-Riegelsville area to the Warren Glen nest I spot this nest! I have been by here many times and also on Cemetery Rd. I even stopped to look briefly one time at this silo/pole, but apparently the lighting wasn't good and perhaps I didn't use my binoculars! It certainly is easy to see, close to the road, tall and the nest is very tall/deep! This nest is about a quarter mile from the Warren Glen nest which is on a cell tower. There was an adult, probably the female, and two chicks on the nest, looking as though they are about ready to fledge!
