Observation details

Seen with Dan & Gloria Dotson. Five sitting on the concrete edge of the south wall off the south coaling platform. All in sight at one time. Two seen on the northern platform may have been the same birds since the southern ones were looked for and missed at a similar time by another birder. Will upload a recording of three of them interacting. Call notes had one note only, richer than the two or three part of the Sooty call. Back was dark grey, not black, obviously lighter shade than cap and primaries. White was clearly behind eye on all five. Two birds repeatedly entered and exited a hole beneath some brick rubble at the southern edge. Possible nesting site?
