Nest #6, 2018-19

Banded Bird #6268, Male

When this bird returned to his nesting site, there was another male on the nest. It took only a few min to eject the intruder and set up his own set of rocks. The female showed up very quickly so it is probably the mate from last year. This male is 10 years old this year. He had been in the colony for several years but this is the first time in our study.
