Mom Back in the Nest Box Again

We once more see the return of the female adult in the nest box, preening, scratching around and napping at 7:52 P.M. until 8:27 P.M. and then again at 2:40 A.M. until 5:18 A.M. There was no sign of the male adult. Could he be roosting nearby or is the female planning to dominate this territory for the winter? We originally predicted that both the male and female would occupy the the breeding territory over the fall/winter months, but it now appears that the female may plan on being the sole occupier.
