    Gerald, Great shots and you are on the way to fledglings. They explore for days. You might want to put in a sprig of pine needles to provide ‘encouragement”. I always do. Mine have already built nest #1 for 2011 and are in their “resting period”, which based on past years lasts about 4-5 days. Then it will be egg time. follow along at: *** Obsolete URL *** Yours will probably be just a few days behind!

      Thanks for the tip, Loret, but while I was out of town for a few days it looks like they may have settled in, so I’ll leave them alone for now. You say nest #1 – do they build a new nest for a 2nd brood? Should we clean out the box after the 1st brood has fledged, or leave it alone all season?

      Thanks!
