This is a very interesting nest. It is on a pylon that the ferry comes up against multiple times a day. The adults would be on and off nest as ferry came and went. They would perch on a taller pylon when ferry near. (See picture). Tonight, an egg was observed by the ferry Captain and Oiler from the wheelhouse of boat. Female flew off but circled back and was back on egg immediately.
