Nesting Diaries

01/10/2016 by mudskipper
Three birds are associated with this nest. I watched the nest beginning Jan 7. On that day, one bird spent only 5 minutes on the nest during an hour’s observation but 3 birds were in the area. Today, Jan. 10th, the nest was occupied by at least one bird for all but 5 minutes over a 45 minute period. Food was delivered to the nest 3 times and nesting material once. One bird remained on the nest while two soared nearby; no obvious interaction was seen between the non-nest sitting individuals.
