Hi all I was wondering what peoples thoughts were on the topic of birds returning to nest sites if they loose chicks at that nest in the previous year. Would the parents return the following year to try again if the nest is a good one ?. Or would the parents abandon the nest for ever after ?. 

I ask because last year I had my goshawks chicks taken by a predator as well as my gang gangs. I am wondering whether they will return this year to try again. If they do I would like to metal collar there nest trees to stop the predation from cats and goannas again.
