Once, just a little over a year ago, they were in the process of moving in. The rookery swamp has a complete and separate area nearby that was perfect for the smaller wading birds.

This guy, and a few others, were flying around there.  It was a fascinating place not that long ago, maybe 100 of these birds with their young.

Last year after decades of nesting none came back.

No one can come up with a reason.
