Hopefully by now you've found the roost at the Waterfront. It's been there all month and I was just there last week and surprised there were still a good amount of birds there. I saw alot of males. I know my nesters were laying late this year I think because the weather stayed cool and wet for so long which might account for the later roosting. Happy birding!
