Yesterday morning as I was in the living room tending to the birds' cages and the greys were in the kitchen, I heard a big "thud!" followed by fluttering wings and then quiet.
Of course this strange series of auditory events prompted me to investigate. Last I'd seen them, Max was on the stand and Stella was perched on the sink.
Apparently Stella had moved over to the counter where we stack our recyclables where they wait until one of us is going outside. She knocked over the pizza sauce can and then flew down to try to hatch it.
Getting it in position:
Doing some digging:
Sitting on her "egg":
After I took this series of pictures, I returned everything (sauce can) and everyone (Stella) to more appropriate places. She repeated this, so I took the can out. No need to encourage nesting!
Luckily she remains very sweet and immediately stepped up even while nesting.
