Here is a stick delivery at 9:15am

Dad arriving

He dropped the stick and it landed partly on Mom's back. Then he picked it or another one up and it included a bunch of grass junk. He moved it over and draped it on Mom's back.

She turned her head and looked at him - undoubtedly spoke to him too. He picked it back up and moved it the front, covering the rock.

Dad on the nest -- he had to do some rearranging and uncovered the rock before settling down on the eggs.

There is a house Wren flitting all around the nest perimeter and underneath. Mom has looked at her a couple of times without any concern.

I think this wee bird is trying to find a place to build her nest within the O's nest sticks.

Edit: I just saw her take a piece of grass from the nest and drop down into the nest box at the near right corner - where the O's didn't fill in - Now she has popped out on the outer right corner. If she does build her nest there, it will be rather fun to watch the hatching and feeding while the O's do their thing

We watched the little bird do the same thing yesterday and were wondering if it was building the nest there. It could be fun to watch.

3:50 pm Calgary time

Dad, continuing the nest building, decided to pull something across Supermom's back.

After pulling for a while, he flies off and leaves it on her back.

He briefly flew back in but did nothing to move it despite the fact that I looked like Supermom was telling him to get it off. He left again.

OK That's at least the second time today Dad has draped material across Mom's back - along with the grass string of yesterday - it doesn't seem to be an accident. He is purposefully covering her - ?? to keep her warm? to give her shade? to provide camouflage? Or is he just trying to do some thing - any thing for her ? There is no doubt he thinks she is THE Most Important!!!! thing in his existence. Red Heart hugRed Heart
