In the Waiting Room...

As of 9:00 AM on Sunday March 16 when I am writing this blog post, we are still in the waiting room anticipating BR laying her first egg. (Of course, as soon as I hit "Publish" she will lay her egg because my timing is like that!) BR in particular has been participating in many bouts of "Olympic Stick Wrestling" this week. Ez has also been working on the nest and bringing prey. As BR is not usually on the nest when he comes by, the prey gets left in the nest. The fate of said prey is either (1) Ezra comes back and eats it, or (2) starlings throw it overboard. No one is certain exactly why the starlings do this, but CulleyL has said that perhaps the starlings somehow see the prey as some kind of threat.
