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.
