J4 has not returned. A new pair OX (male) & N7 (female) have claimed the nest.

This female loves her nest to be VERY deep. This is her second nest location in the area. Her first was on a nearby freeway light which was taken down. Oddly, she isn't bothered by the tennis players but when someone walks past with a dog, she get very excited.

Brief visit on 4/17. Female appears to be incubating. Male appeared briefly before heading off to hunt/perch elsewhere.

Stopped by this nest platform on the way home from work on 4/9. Female observed on platform. Male arrived with large stick for nest. Stayed for a few minutes and flew off. No spotting scope, so unable to see bands.

This nest is next to a tennis court, next to an elementary school and a freeway is right behind it. They mow under this platform. But, 3 chicks successfully fledged last year.
