Adventures & NiteTime Antics

Male UFO landed silently 1:36am on the porch.
  He then entered the Kastle.
 (hello is this thing on?)

Is this "Our Mel" or a UFO Male?.
One thing for sure is that its a Male!

After leaving the inside of the box, he stepped out & hopped to the roof. He flew off 1:46.

Same UFO returned 2:25am, landed on the smoke stack, preened then flew off 2:38am.

 Returning for a 3rd time, Male UFO landed once again on the smoke stack 2:49 & looked around before flying off 2:57am OBT.

Syd landed on the porch 4:12, gingerly approached the door, looked & went in.

She stepped back to preen but seemed attentive knowing there’s a male UFO in the area. As morning progressed, she became more relaxed & took a nap. Faint deets heard 5:40am.
Syd screeched loudly 5:43 at the same time .

Mel landed on palm cam. He took off seconds later passing the Kastle passing the Kastle on the left side, door high.

Syd ignored him happy to stay with us for the day.
Enjoy your day!
