 same male falcon appears at 8 am with bloody talons
Stuck around for hours, preening, dozing

Feb 21 afternoon
I was watching our lonely male.
He saw another falcon, I never saw her.
Poor guy, tried so hard to get her in the box.
Its very early

6:30 am
Our bachelor is up early!  And ripping on a feast!
I see him thruout the day tryin to entice a female - without success.
I just saw her fly past, over the roof, and OFF flew our bachelor after her - WITH his breakfast

Will the Bachelorette accept our Bachelor's rose?
YES!
0ur Bachelorette accepted his rose!
She returned and went inside the nestbox - with the prey

March 2, 2020  at 6 am
Both arrive, go in, and do their bow ritual, then leave
Since the resident female is a scrapper and doesnt arrive til mid-March, there is no way to know if this will be the pair who nests here.  This bachelor has definitely staked his claim, and his rose has been accepted.   ;D

March 30 
2 am  Aero is remaining overnite, we could have 2 eggs
I sure wish we could see inside

March 29   EGG yet .. or soon?
2 am  Aero remains perched at the nestbox overnite
3 pm  I'll bet she DOES have an egg in there, she's acts like she's laying

March 27   
3 am  Aero perched at the nestbox overnite

March 26   
3 am  Aero has remained at the nestbox overnite
If no egg yet, should have one this week!
She has a brood patch

4  EGGs   
April  3 
3.30 pm  Looks like full incubation - she is full down on eggs
Our Bachelor seems to have got a luvly calm Lady for their brood
My guess is 3 or 4 egg clutch - and I'm stickin to it

May 2 report

4  EGGs  - perhaps?
We cant see the eggs so dont know when they were laid.
I can only guess
April  3   Looks like full incubation

Presuming this correct, this will be hatch week
She is really scrunching, male very alert

PIP  ?
May 11
6 am male brot prey to box, she left, he left with bird.
Now THAT is very odd, but I think both falcons have their first brood
Other years I've noted the male brings prey when he hears the chick peep
so perhaps we have a pip - I doubt both'd leave a new hatch chick
After 5 minutes male returns to cover eggs
