I wonder why they chose a new location after the great success they had last year  ???

They would have used last year's box this year if they could have but there is construction going on there so too much disturbance for a nesting pair. We hoped they would use penthouse nestbox # 2 but no.  Hopefully with the 2010 site will be available in 2012 - we are going to do our darndest to make this year's site unavailable next year.

So glad you were keeping an eye out for them and came to the rescue TPC, hoping they have a few more kids this year  :-*

Oh, this is such good news, to hear that Beau & Jules have finally nested and layed some eggs! ;D Fingers crossed that maybe a few of them will be viable. Great news, also, that you were able to install a tuppernest to protect the eggs and that E-S was able to install a spy camera, for you to keep an eye on them, TPC. :-*

We finally were able to get to this year's nestsite and yes, Beau and Jules are trying to nest this year.  Four eggs have been laid, don't know if any of them will turn out to be viable in the end but two I think are iffy, two are possibles. 

We have installed a nest tray under the eggs and Jules took to it within minutes so no worries there.  The location is sheltered but the substrate is poor so the eggs haven't had any real protection.  The nest tray (aka tuppernest) has solved that problem.  We will just have to see what happens.

And yes, we can "see" we have installed two cameras for monitoring purposes only - just like last year, we will not be streaming this nestsite to the 'net. 

Its a waiting game now.

Beau and Jules are up to something, or perhaps, not up to what they should be up to would be more accurate.  They aren't where they should be or could be.  Now we have to go back to checking were they might be again.

These guys are running out of time, another couple of weeks and they will be making it very difficult for themselves to raise young this year.  Hopefully they have realized that in the last few days and we'll find them somewhere unexpected with eggs ...  :-\
