Unusual kestral nesting site?

As I drove to Buddy Todd Park this morning, I was stuck in slow moving traffic on westbound 76 near where electrical lines stretch over all lanes. There are large balls on the lines because of the airport. I saw a kestral go into the orange ball over my head. Starlings nest in traffic poles over roads sometime but has anyone heard of a nesting site like this? I guess cavity nesters are having problems finding good sites.

Buddy Todd still had some migrants and a red-breasted nuthatch that I thought would be gone by now. The only new migrant was a western wood peewee near the tennis courts.
