news from St Antoine (Ettebeeck) Javi Elorriega

Hello! This morning, Benoit and me were lucky again and had fantastic observations of the couple. With beautifull ligth and blue sky they copulated twice just in front of us. After the fisrt observations this seasson I still had some doubts whether their relation was something serious or just a promiscuous male visiting from time to time the female at St Antoine. Now it is clear that the male is spending more and more time at St Antoine taking care of the place and the female. Today again he brougth a pigeon to the female. I think that they are seriously thinking to nest in the corner of one of the gutters below the little windows of the tower (behind the place were the female is perching in one of the pictures). Best regards, Javi

Superbe photo !
Dommage qu'on ne puisse pas la voir en plus large pour mieux l'apprécier. Avez vous des nouvelles de la bague du mâle adulte ? Peut-être qu'une photo de l'édifice permettrait de présenter le site ?
