Cool! I wonder how many other native critters are persisting primarily due to man-made structures in urban and suburban habitats, where invasive species and/or loss of natural breeding/roosting sites would have extirpated them?   Chimney swifts of course come to mind.  Carolina madtoms in the Tar and Neuse Rivers now rely heavily on bottles, tires, and other trash, since the large mussel shells they once nested in have become scarce.

A sharp-shinned or Coopers hawk (I cant tell the difference) regularly drinks out of my ugly 65-gallon stock tank pond in the middle of urban Minneapolis.
