‎'As the Nest Turns' continues! According to Reese Lukei, 'This female with the black in her tail, known as #3, was last seen in the nest with the male on Jan. 30th. She was first in the NBG nest on Jan. 20th. Since Jan. 31st, another female, likely #2 (with the male Jan. 8th-19th), has been with the male and mating with him. #3 was seen Feb. 6th soaring above NBG. Yesterday, at 3:33pm she returned to the NBG current nest tree.'

Here's the breakdown of the females you may have seen in the nest and the dates:
Female #1 - Sept. 2011 - Jan. 6, 2012
Female #2 - Jan. 8 - 19, 2012
Female #3 - Jan. 20 - Jan. 30, 2012
Female #2 - Jan. 31 - Feb. 6, 2012 (Either #2 or a 4th female!)
Female #3 -- Feb. 7

*Whew*

:( I missed the return but it seemed to involve food - video clip - click on image 6:05 min.
Image
13:10 they've both just returned but Dad stays only a minute before leaving...Dirty Tail moves over to the love branch
Image
13:14 ahhh..he's back with a stick...and she leaves
Image
13:22 the male finally moves off the nest to the love branch.
