This is the female from the nest box. At least for now, she is recognizable by the displaced feather on her right wing which has been like that for a few weeks. They can look so intent when they are trying to figure what you are up to. Her nest sits on a telephone pole right at the side of the road, but she doesn't like anyone walking under her nest. She will start crying "Kew" when she sees someone approaching. A jogger was running along the road, so I got ready to film because she will often take to the air in response to the "intrusion" and, sure enough, she took off and flew around for a minute or two. She decided to check me out while she was up there.
