Well, the rest of the streamers came down today on the sparrow spooker & the male is around. My niece said she actually saw him go into the house. I think he’s finally accepted it. Gin, I meant that hopefully the male realized the spooker wouldn’t harm him by now. I know that he’s wary of me, as he should be. However, the last two times I approached the box, I let the female know I was coming & didn’t think she was in there since she didn’t fly out. Both times,she just stayed there incubating her eggs (even when I opened the box). Thought that was a bit unusual…

Thanks again for the advice.
