First Lay Date – April 30th

Marisol sets out into the pajon….the deepest of ALL pajon!

Three nests with eggs (and counting)!

Several observations….

1.  A pair of GOSW were seen attacking a red tailed hawk perched above their nesting box

2.  Many nests are made of not one, but three species of lichen

3.  Species seems to waste no time between clutch completion and committing to incubation.  In fact, it appears as though incubation is taking place DURING the egg laying days.

Currently in town awaiting jeep to be outfitted with a gasoline fuel injection system, as cold mornings with only propane have resulted in us going nowhere!
