A magpie is slowly taking some of the nestovers away.

As long as the ravens do not hang around.

I iwll be keeping a watch ,that is for sure.

Ummmm....someone is in the nestbox right now...trying to make out who.  I'ts not a Raven either.  ???

Okay I've been staring for 15 minutes and it's not moving..maybe some old leftovers but part of it is out of the box  :-X    So I'm not going to worry.

Happy Thanks giving

I wanted to post this now. 
This is from Oct 6. Our last time we saw Radisson flying.  Oct 7 and Oct 8 she turned in so early that we just saw her on the ledge where she sleeps


I will be discussing the cleaning of box and the ravens with the biologists.

Enjoy!!!
