    Thanks, David. Those are with my new Canon 55-250 lens which you inspired me to buy! I just need a tripod to steady my 51 year old hands….lol

    Question for ya. I posted in another thread, but haven’t had a response yet. My pair built a new nest in the same box less then 24 hours after the little guy fledged and I cleaned it out. It’s been 19 days and no eggs. Both parents are around. Both go in and out of the box, most notably the male who seems to keep looking for a new egg. He almost seems as distressed as I am at the absence of anything new.

    Do you have any experience with the typical time it takes to lay a new brood after the first fledged and best is built?

    I’m beginning to think there might be an issue with the female.

    Thanks.

    It just depends on the female and when she is ready to lay the eggs. I have ad them go from 5 days to 5 weeks. This year They built the second nest about 20 days after the first birds fledged but she didn’t lay the first egg of the second clutch until day 22. She only laid 4 eggs and is incubating them now.
    Last year they built a second nest after about 3 weeks but never laid another egg. They did have nestbox competition and may have gone elsewhere for the second family.

    BTW you are doing pretty good without a tripod. I may have to look at another lens. That 250 looks pretty good It looks a bit sharper than my 200.

    While we are on the subject, any recommendations for a quality,net affordable, pair of binocs? I have a Carson 8×25 with a 6 degree(315 feet) field angle that is fog and waterproof. They’re cheap and were given to me. I know I can do much better.
