He is a cute looking bird with that busy brown breast - almost a shame that he will lose it, probably over the next year.

RCF thinks she might have some good news for us ... she'll let us know when she gets a better look at what Hurricane might be up to ..
Fingers crossed
 ;D

Thanks RCF for keeping track of these two!

I saw Hurricane take food into the nest box this morning, so there must be a hatch or hopefully hatches. :-*

Not news I know, but this is such excellent news that it deserves to be celebrated twice!!

Thanks to RCF for keeping watch, keeping us up-to-date and for giving me permission to use her wonderful photos on Twitter.  I've always loved the colour of the brickwork at McKenzie Seeds in the early morning light - don't get to see it often, so very glad RCF caught both the colours & Hurricane :)

Well, I guess I should have waited until today to post. This morning I could see three chicks in the box and this afternoon I could see four chicks!  :o  :-* They had a big feed by the size of the prey Hurricane took in there....no leftovers.   

Four chicks will certainly keep them busy !

The only way I can see in the nest box is to park two blocks away, so photos are not that sharp.
