Daytime Visit

June entered the nest in daylight today and spent nearly two hours working on the wood chips. She is still a bit nervous about being in the nest and peeps out -- as she is seen doing here -- to check out every suspicious sound. When she finally did decide to leave, it seemed  a struggle for her to climb up to the door and fly away. The extra weight of a few eggs is enough to slow her down a bit.

This daylight housekeeping visit is the strongest sign of nesting yet and came only two days behind the schedule she followed last year.
