Does it look like maybe a red tailed hawks? now with leaves down I can find the nests..  I dint see red shouldereds in the area of this one, I think too big for coopers.. but there are GH owls around.. guess I will have to hope they use it again next year.. probably 60 feet up in a tree near the river and a creek that comes in..

Looks like a good one. I'm sure something will use that next Spring. I usually watch several raptor nests each year.

thanks, I just hope i will be able to see it.. surrounded by lots of trees that will be full of leaves.. i am out there a lot and didnt notice this until leaves came down.. i read you should give red tails lots of room near the nest.. so I don't want to get underneath it if that's what will be using it..

there is a high spot about 50 yards away that's level with the nest, but almost positive leaves will be in the way.. I have a new pair of gh owls near my house..wish I could find their nest, but they seem to have a pretty large territory..

My biggest disappointment is when I find a good nest, then Ravens move in. Sad

If Great Horned Owls use this nest, you will be able to tell if you keep an eye on it.  They begin nesting a good while before the leaves come out, usually January-ish here in AL.
