We have a female as of today, but I am not sure who. I never got a look to see if she has a band. She is not very accommodating.  This bird has a lot of speckles on her breast whereas Hurricane only has a few.  In some photos it looks like her and others not so much!  :-\

Looks like your visitor is unbanded .... just to make things interesting :)
There was an unbanded female who visited at this time of the year back in 2017 I believe .... the year we pulled all the sticks out of the nestbox ... I think it was that year at least ...

I did noticed she may not have bands, she still wasn't very accommodating.   :)  This is the  2017 unbanded female, they are different.

There are chicks from the Saskatoon nest that don't get banded, could be one of them ... or one of the few we haven't been able to band ... or a lady who's origins will remain a mystery ...

Gotta love the spring!  ;D

So much happening right now!  It amazes me how they manage to come back all that way, and consistently close to the same dates.  Thanks for the pictures and updates.

Yes, Hurricane better hurry up if she's coming home!   :)

Well, Wingo was not wasting any time, he and the newbie mated this morning. I believe he was trying to get her into the nest box.  I caught the tail end of the shenanagans with my camera.  ;D

"tail-end"  ;D  like that   ;)

Seems like all the boys are in a hurry - Hart's been working it since he got back in town and Pip has been working to catch up!

Still the same two birds here, doing what they do.  ;)   The newbie had a Meadowlark this afternoon....not sure if she caught it or Wingo brought it for her. He did have messy beak so he probably got it for her.

Well, I guess I should have waited for today to post! 

Hurricane is back!  Wingo brought her a food gift and she was very accommodating by showing me her band!  She's waving at all of you.  ;D

Welcome home Hurricane  :-* :-* :-*  You must be relieved RCF!  Hopefully the other female went peacefully and won't give her any grief!

Stay safe out there!

Such great news! I hope the other female realized she was trespassing & moved on without incident!  :)

 ::)  :P  ;D
 
I have to say that Hurricane and Wingo look so much alike from far away and it seems I have mixed them up.  This post I have quoted is actually Wingo, not the newbie(on post) and Hurricane (on green ledge).

So pretty much Hurricane has been back since April 2nd. ;)

Still the same two birds here, doing what they do.  ;)   The newbie had a Meadowlark this afternoon....not sure if she caught it or Wingo brought it for her. He did have messy beak so he probably got it for her.
