Photo was taken about an hour ago near my home in Southern WV. This nest is on an island in New River. I couldn't get any closer without a boat.

It's too early for them to start freshening the nest for the coming nesting season, but they go there often anyway. Often they take a fish they've caught there to eat it. This nest is going into it's sixth year. I'm very anxious for this pair. The female is a new mate. We lost his fist mate to an accident last spring. She was struck by a passenger train when she flushed from feeding on a deer carcass near the tracks.
