Photos of this nest
Female(?) definitely brooding eggs-very low in nest-only head was visible.. Last visit on 4/21 female was observed off the nest and male was still bringing in branches. Male was not spotted today.
Also wanted to note there is constant crow activity/noise around this nest and its neighboring nest(2/10 mile away).
Female is sticking close to nest. Male is getting sticks and making nestorations. Mating continues. No eggs yet.
Female is back and fishing line is off her foot :) Male was actively getting sticks, adding them to nest and mating-4 times in half an hour.
Observed pair for first time and also mating on April 4. First sighting of pair and first observation of mating on nest. Female looked to have fishing line entwining left foot. On two post visits(4/5 & 4/7) female was not on nest-male was calling.
