INTRUDER!

8.30  It was over fast - whatever that was!
I went to DVR and one click at a time watched what happend

Barb was on eggs
1 -  Nubo came up onto bridge from below vocalizing - head down
2 -  he leaps into nest to protect his family! 
3 -  intruder appears on bridge
4 -  Barb huffs n puffs n chased it off

Some of us thot there was an intruder around
He is a great protector!  He was RIGHT THERE!
In my opinion, Nubo is saying

MINE!

MOTEL 6 says - we'll leave the light on for ya!
4 am there is a spotlight on the nest building, maybe escaped criminal. Glad he cant fly!

April 29, 2019  Temp 46-60
 lovely day for 3 babies!
5.51 am  Barb on eggs
6 am  Barb calls and Nubo quickly lands on bridge and she gives him her breakfast order
Then he jumped off the bridge as if to say - as you wish, my Princess!
He's so adorable and hilarious I cant stand it!    ;D
6.30 am  Barb lifts a bit, looks like still 2 eggs
6.45 am  Barb left briefly, Nubo stood guard on roof

INTRUDER (unseen by cam)
10.20 am  Barb begins YELLING, Nubo is right there, both looking up
Nubo takes off like a rocket after intruder and Barb goes to doorway and yells
WOW.  What a great team they make!
Its a joy to see how protective Nubo is!   :)

12 noon  had to be an intruder again but I didnt see it
 Barb started yelling, flew out and straight over that red bldg out there!
Nubo came scolding up a storm, guarding, first on bridge, inside nestbox then on roof

HATCH #2
April 30, 2019   Temp  56-80  chance of rain

6.10 am  Barb goes to get brekky from their stash and feeds 2 babies
 -  Clearly Nubo's raised young before, he has nice sized meals stashed
11 pm last nite Egg 2 hatched. Will egg 3 hatch? 
As kids eat I see #3 thru hole in egg 3 eager to get out!  Probly today

In previous years, ALL Barbs eggs have hatched
I really think Nubo chased Boh off. Just my opinion.
Boh was so meek - sweet but meek - he probly didnt fight

6.45  Nubo appears with a nice little snack, Barb takes it back to the stash, saying -
 - Where were you half hour ago, I already fed em!

8 am  Barb is chattering away with Nubo as he stands by - out on the roof
10 am feed
1.30  Barb leaves, Nubo comes to guard
Baby spins round n round waiting for Mom to return
2 pm and Nubo knows chicks need food, Mom gone half hour
 -  He even goes into the nest and up to comfort chicks by beeking
He was on the roof and under the bridge too!
2.10 Mom's home, stands awhile, hoping egg 3 will hatch - its workin hard in there!
4.45  Barb leaves, Nubo comes to guard, no feed
5.55  Barb leaves, Nubo comes to guard, no feed
There were times I didnt see either parent

7.45 pm  Barb brings BIG bird - feeding

It appears Barb did not feed her chicks from 10 am til 7.45 pm today.
That is too long!

May 2  Temp  60-85  PM Thunderstorms
3.45 am the fog is so dense it acts like IR! WOW!
Must some bright light(s) out there its reflecting.
5.50 am  Barb hops off - downward, I bet her pantry is on a lower balcony
Brings up breakfast with Nubo watching

Barb laid 4 eggs and discarded one a couple weeks ago.
2 chicks hatched, the 3rd egg doesnt look like it will.
This bird came in 2015 and ALL her eggs have always hatched.
This leads me to believe Boh was sick for awhile.
This new Boh I call Nubo this year is strongly paired with Barb.
He is hilarious and I enjoy watching him.
Together they have routed intruders.
Nubo is good with the chicks.
