Second egg, laid during the night or very early this morning.

One of the birds going into a stoop from the nest box, on the very distant cam:

This afternoon, Alley returned to the nest to protect her egg. She was still there after dark this evening.

Alley had been spending time in the nest box over the past couple of days, looking somewhat lethargic.

 

And here comes 19/K: in the second pic, he is in the nest box behind Alley.

Joel Jorgensen's post about 19/K's visit to the Woodmen nest states that he was there from February 15 - 19.

However, that is not quite the whole story. I observed 19/K at the Woodmen nest on February 7. Either he spent a longer period of time at Woodmen, or he made more than one visit.

 

 

It is difficult to believe that 19/K will be fifteen years old this year. He still looks like a young tiercel.

Box is empty this morning and the scrap seems to be nicely filled in again.  Human? or Alley redecorating?
Cloudy in Lincoln right now - you can watch the clouds skid by if you watch the falcon cam as opposed to the falcon nest cam.

Managed to get a not perfect, but perfect enough screen capture of the legband on the female bird in the nestbox on the 29th.  Sent the image to Joel in Nebraska who thanked us for a second pair of eyes and confirmed that it is Alley's band and so Alley and 19K have returned yet again!  This will be their 12th year together.

Colour is correct, leg is correct but only saw the bottom half of the band ... good news is that Alley has a somewhat unique band number combination and what I saw matches at least 2/3 of her unique combination ... fingers crossed.
