All 2018 observations and photos by Mary Ellen H.
observer Mary Ellen H. has checked the nest often during June and concludes that for some reason, the nest has failed. While the adults are sometimes around the nest, there have been no chicks. If the eggs were viable, they would have hatched well before July 2nd.
observer reports: One flew away just as I was approaching. Neighbors have seen two together in area.
observer reports no activity for a week.
observer reports: Mom is on the nest incubating. It is just a guess that incubation may have started about May 1.
OBSERVER REPORTS: Finally for last few days BOTH present and today signs that nest is being fortified.

Behavior has been very erratic, to say the least, so I will keep looking.
