He preened and made sure he was looking good for the night.
He stepped out 9:17pm to the porch and flew off at 9:21 & returned after 12:08am and Sydney was right behind him.
Could this be the night?
Was the mood right?
For bonding delight in our eyesight?
Mel takes his stance, swaying back and forth, hissing , beak snapping, he lifts his wings as if he is wearing a cape of feathers.
She has her wing shoulders up to the point where they are close to her ears. She tries to not make eye contact, and looks out they door.
And then it happens..
Mel slowly takes a few steps towards the front where she stands and hops.
Are they fighting?
Underneath the view of the inside cam, we get a look from the palm cam view and the entrance hole, just what is going on.
It happened 12:35am, up front by the door, bonding amour,
Will there be an encore?
Sydney decided to fly the coop so to speak 12:37, as Mel seems baffled yet proud.
Mel went outside and took off 12:53, circled then Syd chased him into the trees.
An owl did a touch & go landing on the roof 1:14am.
Mel returns with a treat at 2:34am & placed it in the upper right pantry.
Way to to go Mel !!!
He steps out to look for Syd 3:54 then steps back in when she lands on the porch 4:12.
He danced & deeted for her to come in..
Sydney left 4:24. So there will be no encore of the amour that happened 1 minute after 12:34.
Wow just look at the size of that hork Mel did the day before..
Will he eat the treat or save it for his lady?
She may not have a GHA, or even guessed the FNN for the night,
not even one trivia point either but she won the ultimate big daddy of them all.
