I arrived later than usual, having been tied up photographing Lola. The male was just about to leave the cavity and I just got a few shots before he did. He was taking out the trash again. I'm not sure what it was this time.
The female soon appeared and didn't take long to leave. Tonight, I followed her, rather than watching for signs of nestlings. She made lots of calls in front of the nest and to the side of the nest. It seems as though she is encouraging the nestlings to come out of the nest. I wonder what happens after we leave!
