The female was using the small broken tree cavity by Glen Span Arch this evening. She jumped up while I was on the bridge in response to owl tapes played by an owl tour leader. I was able to call out for him to stop and brought the group up to the bridge, but she was already disturbed and calling out.
She settled down, flew out and was joined by the male at the bottom of the arch. They went around the area of the old nest cavity. She peeked in once again and they both copulated nearby.
They then went back towards Glen Span Arch, flew through it and off to the west side of the arch.
