Nest # 2 status and archive, 2016-17
Nov 3, 2016 (picture on the left) the male has built a beautiful nest and is waiting for the female to arrive. Nov 9 (picture on the right), the female has arrived, probably the same mate as last year. This pair has also been in our study before, the male is 9 years old this year and is using the same nest site as last year. This is the Home Ranch, a good breeding colony and he has a strong nest. You can compare previous seasons of this banded male HERE, HERE and HERE. The first egg was laid on Nov 16.
The male is Toby and the female is Echo. They were named by the students in Travis Hargreave's 4th grade class at Cheery Creek Academy, Englewood, CO.
