As The Bluff Turns  ;) 
March 8
Newman appears to be courting Nina
1 pm  Newman's been feeding her all day!
Who will lay the (first) egg ?

2 pm  both were inside box and SUDDENLY both flew out, feathers flying

FIGHT!
March 9 before 7 am
This is what it looked like to me ... ?
Nina was preening at the box, Nova arrived and went inside the box.
Nina went in, Nova landed first bite. Unsure who won

That was a really bad "cat fight" between the girls.  I sure hope Nina did not get injured too bad.

Great Spirit Bluff Falcons, Dresbach, MN Post from April 13, 2020 visit from Nina

Here are a couple pics from my post on April 13th 2020 when we had a visit from Nina (Newman doesn't seem to mind a visit, he is in nest box on eggs)

March 9
Ice is nearly out


Nina was a baby in 2020

If this is Nova, she got a bloody bite on her leg.
Both birds had to have been hurt, that was a heckuva scrabble

Nova looks smaller, but sure is feisty!  Guess her buttons got pushed one too many times...............

Rainy morning at GSB, and they look different when wet. My question is, who's on the nest box and who's on the tree limb?

My feeling looking at those is Nova on the nestbox?

UB7
March 10
UB7 perched on cam - and on roof.
The 7th female, this one unbanded.
That gives her a designation anyway


Terka on bcaw suggests we refer to the newest female as UB7
Why not?  Nova will chase her off too

Female UB (unbanded) - The seventh female.
My name suggestion: Seven (Madame Seven)

Maybe Nova remembers the owl and is hesitant to nest in the box again.
