- Comments: "As I stood on the first platform up the stairs from Ambergill Falls, looking at the nest over the boulder bridge, one bird was singing behind me. There was not a bird on the nest. From what I've read, if a pair of this species, for whatever reason, abandons a nest, they "almost invariably renest, often several times if subsequent nests also fail". I don't believe that there has been a report of these birds on or using the nest Friday, but if they are regularly not being seen on the known nest site (directly above the boulder bridge), it could be worthwhile to look around the area to see if they have relocated. All of this said, my observation was very brief (one to two minutes) due to the impending storm. "
