For the last four years running there has
been a pair nesting on the roof of the YMCA at the Jamison Center. Last
year I talked to the receptionist there and she said that "the Ranger was
aware of them". I don't know what happened to them.
A few years ago there was a pair nesting on a flat
roof at CSIRO Wildlife Gungahlin with three eggs that I checked daily. I blocked
the downpipes with wire netting for the duration so the chicks wouldn't fall
into them before I could rescue them but the eggs were gone one morning and
there was no sign of any chicks. There were Australian Ravens around all the
time so I presumed they got them.
