!!! Second nesting attempt at OPG Hearn plant!

Yesterday (June 5, 12:30 pm), I was able to observe the pair from Unwin Ave. on a possible nest site to the right of the stack. At first I could only see one bird (maybe the male?) and he seemed to be working on something - at least he seemed to be spending a lot of time with his head down. Then the second bird (who seemed a bit larger so I’m guessing female) appeared from deeper in the structure and walked past the first bird to the ledge. They remained together for several minutes before the male flew away to perch on a pipe on the side of the building (I’ve seen one perched in this same spot several times this spring). I stayed for a total of 20 minutes and neither had moved by the time I had to leave.

Here are a few photos to give you an idea what was going on - sorry for the poor quality!
