For those that were watching last night you saw example of what I have been saying about guessing where they will land. Molly landed on the far right end of the photo posing ledge but I had the camera focused and pointing more to the left. Molly was out of the frame, so we waited and waited and waited some more then finally Molly flew in to the box and just before she landed I was able to capture this Molly photo.
Callie the female kestrel returned again yesterday and we captured her on the owl box calling for a mate but so far we have not seen any male kestrels in the area. Callie was named before the dog next door showed up with the name Callie, so no the kestrel was not named for the dog.
Today Carrie is 2 weeks old; yesterday Ashley was two weeks old. Today we celebrate their birthdays with this Owl Box Cake that was sent to us by Richard and Barbara Blount and Family during the first clutch.
Life continues to move forward.
