More on the New Male & Cam Update

Later this afternoon we will replace the nestbox camera but until then expect the picture to be blue and green. While we are working, all video feeds will be temporarily disconnected. Our work out on the ledge will be done as quickly as possible so as to minimize disturbance to the "new bird."

It appears as though the new male does not have leg bands. Therefore, we have no idea where he came from or his age. His plumage looks to be full adult which would make him at least 3 years old. Mary Anne posted this video of the male and Scout with prey that he likely caught for her. Here is another photo showing a bare leg (thanks to Mary Anne for this picture as well):
