No sign of any. Mel says that one of them was at his house yesterday morning. Probably the new one (the presumed female), as it was skittish and flew when Mel went out to feed the birds. The longstanding male never flies away when it’s feeding time. He hasn’t seen it since last week. My research tells me that the male will sit on a nest during the day, then switches with the female during the night. It’s very possible that this is what is happening here. The female (if it IS a female) is new and she hasn’t shown a routine yet. Incubation is about 14 days so maybe in two weeks, we’ll see the adults again and be able to follow them to a nest. I’ll be checking every two or three days and will post any positive results. Mel is keeping eyes and ears open as well. Fingers crossed.
