Hi Dale, if you take the extra step to add AC and Heating along with walls  
and roof,, you are assured of success!
You can decorate the inside with pictures of beautiful naked Red Hawks for  
even more attraction.
Yea, it's a slow day here!

A  pair of red-shouldered hawks have constructed and are sitting a nest 
in a  pine tree in the front yard of house down the street from me.

They are  very likely the same pair that damaged my C3E 20m 
reflector--one or both  perched on the element on one side or the other 
of the boom breaking the  element-boom rivets.

Since they regularly use my mast and less often my  C3E to perch, I got 
to thinking that if they nested on the tower top,  maybe they would do 
their perching elsewhere other than the  C3E.

Has anyone ever put up a platform suitable for nest-building  
(low-walled, holed for drainage, etc.) on the top of their  mast?
