I think there's a problem with this nest location. It says it's in a Home Depot parking lot. But the map show it located at the Capitol Police. I went to the nearest Home Depot, and there was no nest. I re-read the description and it says US 301. That highway is nowhere near either the Home Depot nor the location plotted on the map. I didn't check the police station lot, so I don't know if the lat/lon is wrong or the description is for a different nest.

This nest has grown significantly and is now occupied by two birds. On 1/16/13, I took the two photos of one of the birds and will continue monitoring this nest and hope to get both soon.
