Stan Keeps Up The Fish Deliveries

Feeding all 3 young in turn Stan continues to provide for his offspring. It is thought that males provide most of the food for fledged young, especially older young; e.g., among mated pairs in U.S. East and Midwest, 11 satellite-tracked females departed 7–39 days (mean 22.3 d) before their mates in all cases.

Another Solo Rooster

We think the second oldest sibling has returned once more to roost in the box during the day. The other fledglings are likely roosting nearby. One or two juveniles have been visiting the box through the night looking for stashed prey, we have not seen the youngest return for a week. The youngest was always the most vocal and we do hear a lot of screeching outside the box through the night, so we hope he is still around, just choosing to roost elsewhere.
