I have great faith in this community and their ability to give out ids of unknown spottings. I have only been here over a month now, but I am quite impressed by the knowledge of many. Your Id has arrived by one, I truly admire, for her knowledge.

I think this ID is right. I've seen these in the San Diego Zoo which is why I took a stab at this at all. They make fantastic apartment house nests that look like this: http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/553... and here's another spotting that looks a lot like yours http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/865...
