I just got this sent to me by Beth Brinson. Neither is conclusive breeding, but possibles:
I birded the Alleghany Access of New River State Park yesterday (5-17) and had a Peregrine Falcon sitting at an old raven's nest on the big rock face along the river. He remained there for the couple of hours that we checked on him. ....
Further up river I had a Common Merganser female fly into a cavity in a large sycamore--another possible nesting occurrence.
