Failed nests

So sad to be discovering some failed nests this week...not sure if it is predation, all the rain that may make it difficult for the male to provide enough food, flies (given all the reports of eagles and hawks being bothered, harmed). We will keep investigating. I appreciate the volunteers checking their nests...this is a particularly vulnerable time for the chicks as they become too big to be brooded constantly but they cannot fly.
