There were no birds using the nest in 2009. I am not sure about 2010, but there were birds using the nest last year and again this year. I think the project was a success!
We have driven past this nest many times and have never seen birds in it. Today we saw a bird in it so we stopped to take pictures. I took a picture and then the first bird flew away. A second bird popped up and sat there long enough for me to take pictures of it.
