Last year, this nest was rebuilt and one chick fledged. This year, both birds came back and started repairing the nest, but the nest was gone one day when we rode by. We don't know if it was destroyed by weather or human, but it's been torn down before, so we are assuming it was torn down again. They hung around for awhile, but we only see one every so often, flying over now.

There is a pair in this nest! I am thinking it was the male from this nest who was bothering the Boat Ramp nest pair today, for some reason. I don't know if they were chasing each other over a female, since they both have one, or territory. This should be interesting this summer!
