Thanks for the info Doorn. I checked the main house today and there is the beginnings of one nest. It contains some coarse stemmy grass laid flat around the sides
with a small cup in center, with no mud or leaves yet.
Sooo, yay!!! Looks as though I have an immature pair. Well see how far they make it this year!!

He's gone... There was an interested female but I guess not interested enough. They have been gone for several days. So sad. His partial nest remains in the house. I could tell some birds were attempting to lure him away, and they succeeded.
Dang it.....maybe next year. Shoot.. Darn. Crap.
