This pair is on the James River for their second year. They built a second nest on a light pole, 200 yards to the east, due to a Canada Goose being on the nest from last year. Unfortunately, this pair had a failed breeding season this year. One bird sat on the nest, but no chick ever hatched. They did not go into any feeding movements at all.
