      these images are insane, may I ask if they nest at this location every year?

      great shots!

      They nest in the general vicinity, approximately 50 - 100 yards from previous years. This nest site has been used at least twice: 2009 and 2011. I haven't found their nest this year, but I haven't looked very hard.
