A favor from birders

For the past week, I have been seeing one of the PIED BILLED GREBES hanging out in the back channel of the western most island of Three Sisters Islands at the center south shore of Prospect Lake.
This may indicate the bird might be scoping the phragmites there for a nesting.( Prospect had one successful nesting about 6 years ago)

The request or favor I have is birders to let me know if they see or find a nest in those phragmites. If yes on a nesting , let me know asap as my office might have to take steps to secure and protect the nesting.

Pied Billed Grebe is "Threatened" in New York State.
