Nesting Diaries

06/16/2013 by Daytona Dave
When I drove by the site I thought the nest looked empty. I parked in a spot about 100 yards north of the nest, from which I regularly observe the nest, and set up my scope. There is no sign of either bird. I don't know when the nest was abandoned. The last day I'm sure I saw a bird there was on Monday, 6/10/13.

The photo is now up. I took this with a Canon Power Shot SX 50 HS. Its 50 X optical zoom brings the object in close. However, due to the height of the tower, I can barely see the bird in the nest when it's incubating.
