No action at N. Beardless Tyrannulate nest

I watched the Northern Beardless Tyrannulet nest for an hour this evening with no sign of any tyrannulet.  I did not see the nestling in the nest entance either with my binoculars or via the pic above .  It seems likely that the nestling(s) have fledged. 
 A few more observations about the tyrannulet's nest. It was made by adding nesting material on a native ball moss.  In these pics taken from other side of the nest from the opening it can be seen how there is a nest attached at the bottom of this ball moss.  It is interesting to see when the bottom pic is enlarge that daylight can be seen through the nest material.  SeEtta
