Puck is our little homebody this year ... kid comes home every single day to play with the bits in the nestbox.  Maybe he'll inherit Trey's housekeeping gene ... only time will tell.

Titania turned up yesterday for a bit ... she's a big female ...

Late last week, Faith and Ty were doing a lot of bowing in the box but then Puck would turn up and off the adults would go ... not so much this week but it is still early in the season for post-season dating ...

Ty and Faith have been trying to have some alone time together today but their kid Puck keeps interrupting them - or turning up right after the fact ...



Faith & Ty renewing their pair bond this morning ... without interference this time from Puck

Today was a great day!

Found a couple of birds in the usual location. Ty on the south sign in the sun, and one of the chicks on the east sign. Found another bird in a different location. This one was Titania and I was in the right place at the right time. She was so close.

Titania, really couldn't have been much closer without having to back up to get her picture.


Thank you for sharing, Dupre. Titania is sure looking gorgeous in your close-up photos! You were so lucky to find her in the right place at the right time!

Good to know you saw Puck and Titania yesterday hmm, maybe Oberon was busy enjoying the Radisson site!

Rose and I were in Winnipeg this morning for a very quick in and out trip. We were lucky enough to see one of the chicks.  It had green tape on it's band so I guess it was Puck.    :)

You timed your trip to Winnipeg just right for some very nice photos of Puck! Thanks for sharing, RCF. I see that Puck still seems to be a homebody, as TPC has mentioned. Hes also very cute!  :D

Faith and Ty are still hanging out at the nestbox - usually visit at least once a day, often more but usually don't stay long, just asserting their control on their territory I suspect.

Today however, Puck turned up!  The timing was so close to when Windsor left the Radisson nestbox (check that post/photo on the Radisson thread) that I wondered if it could have been him making the rounds, but nope, read Puck's band number so two of the boys are still in town along with at least 4, but I think still 5 of the adults.  There was a bird with a blacker head and a much bigger white breast - reminiscent of Trey's - at the Logan nestsite today and given what he was doing and where and how comfortable he looked doing it, even though Ty and Hart have physical traits in common, I have no doubt of the two, it was Hart.  Joli was definitely at Logan yesterday doing a lot of preening.
