This morning was the usual activity at the nest. Bring in some nest materials, meet you at the
Love Branch. Let me step right over you, which he did (no mating). But what happened at 12:30 was wild!
I will always remember it as Topgun. Two very focused adults flew directly into the nest area and
before I knew it there were 4 adults in hot pursuit of each other like I have never seen.
They were fast and furious over the Court and in front. The whole thing lasted maybe
twenty seconds, but was incredible. I was unable to get many images because of their speed and the lack of
it on my part. Hopefully Joe will post his. One of them shows whom I believe is Notched Lady as one of the intruders
and DT on the move defending.

Wow I'm confused - the first pic - was taking grasses to nest? Isn't that "Notch Lady"? Notch, right wing similar to male's who has notch in LEFT wing- closer to body. Oh man, who's on first???????? GREAT Jim - thanks so much!
