07:52 Part 3


Starlings stay together in the box for a long time, sometimes in peace and sometimes a little "fight". Think it's also a new female :puzzled:

Good morning :hi:

It seems, now we have a starling couple in nestbox :whistling:

06:47 Male jumped in the window, calling and female comes in

Around 20 minutes in peace in harmony, only sometimes they tease themselves

07:44 Talking female back, checking the box



07:46 Starling off

It was an in and out from female and male (with nistmaterial)

07:48 Singing male comes in, female (think this is the right one)follows, she observes the window ... suddenly a second female comes in. Male immediately leaves the box, females have a fight
