Nest appears to be abandoned. No sign of adults in the area. Watched for over an hour. I don't know reason, however eggs were laid very late here. They could have abandoned nest or predator is possible.

After several weeks of nest disturbance by a 2nd and sometimes a 3rd male, things have settled down as incubation finally began around the 12th of May. Can't tell how many eggs there are. This family will face a challenge due to the late appearance of eggs.

5/4 Continuing interference by a 2nd male keeps this pair busy for hours per day. I am thinking, this male intruder may be last years resident that was ousted. He is very determined and constantly brings fish with him when he visits.

Lots of drama at this nest. For 3 weeks I have watched as an unpaired male attempts to take over nest. Most of the day is spent by both adults chasing this intruder away. This has been, for many years, a very successful nest.
