The male Frogmouth of the pair I monitor has assumed the position.  Not leaning against a car in front of Dirty Harry, but on the nest.  I assume there is an egg or two underneath him.  

It appears that my initial view of them having started nest building on 17 August was a little previous, with the twigs evident on that date having simply fallen there.  They were blown off two days later and building actually began on 21 August.  It took them 20 days to complete the nest this year: similar to the 19 days last year but longer than the 14-16 days taken from 2010-16.
