Welcome Home June!

While Ward looked a bit more relaxed as he sat on his high perch yesterday, the first real indication that something had changed did not come until just after dark when he landed on the rail of the nest box. He then proceeded to repeat his monkey call from the doorway for the next five minutes to assert his ownership for the first time this year. The reason for his enthusiasm became apparent about two hours later when June could be heard entering the nest box for some serious housekeeping. The wood chips could be heard bouncing off of the walls as she rearranged them again and again. This continued until  Ward called to her with his classic hoot almost thirty minutes later. She responded immediately with her own classic hoot and bolted out of the nest to join him. They could be heard exchanging hoots several more times during the night and it's beginning to look like there may be a new family this year after all.
