"Maybe Nova remembers the owl and is hesitant to nest in the box again."  Or too many other females hanging around HER home.

March 11
Perhaps it'd be different if Nova and Newman had been mates for 2 or 3 years and successfully raised young.  Maybe nova only had one fight in her.  Maybe there will be no eggs this year.   TOO EARLY for that conclusion!

4 pm  Newman mated with UB7 on the roof

Terka on bcaw blog idea. I like it.

Juvie - 02/25
Nova - 02/25
66/N - 02/27

Lisa 53/W - 03/04
Amhran 92/X - 03/05
Nina M/04 - 03/07

now this is UB7 - the 7th female

Newman has mated with at least 3
Might Nova be nesting elsewhere in Newman's territory - UB7 just wants to be fed??

Can anyone tell if this is Nova?  They were in the nest box rubbing heads and Newman left.  She sat there for a bit and then went up on the front edge of the roof a bit before she left.

Nora,

I was peeping in at them a lil bit ago on Explore.org, and Cam Ops said that was a younger unbanded female.  Not Nova.

March 14
Newman mated with NB7 on the roof
This is the 2nd time that I know of he did that there

Nova has not been seen since the fight - to my knowledge

I KNOW thats NOT a sub on the river - but - what is it???

I wondered about that too if it's still there, possible.  It's big enough.

Well at least he's with someone.  Darn, is that blood or a red-winged blackbird?  I hate to see them get the "neat" birds.............
