We have at least one that has been around for weeks now. It looks like something built a nest in the grill of our ATV but I noticed it after we road it a couple weeks ago. We've left it be since then.

We have had one group of three fledge late last week somewhere near our house, and as usual they practiced their flying, with the parent birds instructing them constantly, in a protected area between our house and garage, where they "fly" from the stone floor to a chair seat, then to a table top, then into a stone wall covered in vines, where they find things to eat. It is a delightful scene to see and hear.
Strange thing, I wasn't seeing or hearing any CARW all spring and the latter half of winter-for the first time. Just a couple days ago I started hearing them again, and came across a nest on the back porch-tilted sideways in an old hanging basket liner on a container against the wall. 1st just one egg, then yesterday 5. In late afternoon the sitting bird spooked and flew at my face!
