Nest #2, 2018-19

Banded Bird #4235, Male

This bird has been in our study for 5 out of the 6 last seasons, click HERE to see the stories. They have been successful in raising chicks, but not every year. In each year he has built his nest in the exact same location, and probably has the same mate. They arrived early this year and have a well buit nest. He is 11 years old. We do not know how old his mate is.
