Anxious Owls

The owls continue to exchange classic hoots by day and make noisy visits to the nest box at night. Last night, June spent more than five minutes issuing her hwu-hwu call while sitting in the door of the nest box. Each time she seemed to be quieting down, Ward wailed from a nearby tree and June responded with another hwu-hwu sequence. June has visited the nest five times in the last week with Ward accompanying her on two of the visits. Still no sign of nesting and I'm beginning to think that Ward and June are as puzzled as I am.
