Last Thursday a gentleman posted on another site with photos describing how this eagle pair was stealing sticks from the monk parakeets' nest at the site described below and bringing a nearby possible new nest site.

I'm not sure if they were checking it out as a possible nesting site. It didn't look like they were after the parakeets that were no doubt hunkered down inside. This would certainly be an interesting development if they nested there!
