The same pair of RBWP have returned to the same nest box again this year. Last year, none of the babies survived and appeared to have been killed by squirrels. This pair has been working very hard. The first clutch from this year failed earlier this summer. Since then, with the help of my friend Mark, we have trimmed away a lot of the palm frond to keep the squirrels away. This is the second clutch and I could hear the constant screaming of the babies begging for food everyday. I am happy that they finally produced some young ones that will be leaving within the next few days.
