A pair are defending a nest with three eggs out the side of Louisa Lawson Building in the Tuggeranong Town Centre.  They have used this area to breed for the past couple of years.  When I discuss this with fellow workers in the building, the general view is that it is an unwise place to nest because it is so close to human activity, both pedestrians and cars.  My observations from the past couple of years is that they have been successful in their breeding at this location.

When I worked in the (now defunct) AFP compound at Weston, a pair nested for several years just outside our building, almost under the bumpers of the parking cars. Their breeding was successful as well.
