State Capitol - 2009 / 19K & Alley
« on: April 10, 2009, 17:27 »
Just to start us off right, Alley & 19/K are back in the "old" nestbox on the State Capitol Building in Lincoln, Nebraska.  This is their fourth year together and everyone has high hopes as they lost all their chicks last year - at about the same age as the Radisson chicks when they were lost.  On April 3rd there was 1 egg in the box, so if all has gone well, there could be up to 4 by now.

So I take it the camera isn't up? Any information is greatly appreciated
OOPS just saw that it was put up

Yeah given they had a year like Trey and Princess last year let's hope for a good year for them this season.

Incubation is continuing; it's difficult to see what is happening in this nest. I wonder where the new nest box which has been provided is located.

I hope this pair will have a very successful year.

'Fraid I haven't heard yet where the new nestbox is located, but I'm sure I will get a reply to my email eventually, the Lincoln folks are usually pretty good about getting back to me but sometimes it takes a while.  At this time of the year, I can understand that they are swamped with emails & work.

The box the birds are using this year (and have used in previous years) is being taken down at the end of this season so the Nebraska folks have installed a new nestbox for Alley & 19/K to get used to.  They didn't choose the new one this year, but they won't have an option next year.  I haven't seen any images or description of the new box, but it might be that it has easier access for both people and the webcam ...

It's GREAT to see Alley & 19/K with chicks....  I can't believe it.  Someone tell the news to Princess and Trey that they are Grandparents, again, but the excitement never wears off  :P
