Mel entertained us with his fancy foot work as soon as he entered.
On his 3rd visit after exiting he jumped to the roof then camera housing, looked around then flew off towards the back. Distant deets & screeches heard since 2:26, 2:33 & 2:55.
On Mel's 4th visit, despite hearing the faint distant sounds of a GHO in the early hours, the brave & mighty Mel flew in silently entering the Kastle immediately 3:58.
He rearranged the furniture at 4:49, knocked on the back wall 4:51, moved to the door then left 4:52.
On 5th visit, he arrived deeting & began to dance. His deeting became louder & louder. He grew more excited & his fancy foot work became more intense with the anticipation of Syds arrival. She landed on the rooftop 5.02 then took off but returned 5:04 landing by the door. Mel stopped deeting & dancing but he crouched down toe dusting, beak snapping & huffing (this is part of the courtship ritual). Syd left 5:12. Mel wondering where she went came out and looked for her then departed.
The playground shook 5:38 (landing), screeches were heard then pg shook again 5:49 (take off).
Incoming deets heard just before Syds touch & go landing at 5:53 then a split second later she returned but this time she landed on the upper perch.
She flew off at 5:55am, both to spend the day in the trees.
*Special thanks to our moderator Ozgood13 for his excellent report and keeping the log of times of Mels arrival times in the "Court of Kangas Kastle."
