Ran's eagle scout nesting project: 3 platforms installed, 2 active, 1 successful fledgling 3 chicks,and ironically it was the nesting pair at the home not the 2 farther away in open marsh. These platforms were installed to replace existing 3 platforms at same or near locations, in years past there were 2 active pairs that moved around the 3 sites, so 2 out of 3 may be the norm moving into future seasons, time will tell.

no activity throughout the season, may be too close to the overlook public pool as there is another nest on a snag in the back marsh singing distance from this site, that snag nest fledged 3 chicks

I hear from the land owner both of the other 2 Ryan's nest pairs enjoy using this platform for dining. this platform is closer to the community pool at The overlook where there is much human activity so it remains to be seen if a sub adult pair claims it this season.
