Construction effects have been stepped up from only morning excavations to twice daily. Mr & Mrs King definitely are in the nesting mood now. Both birds sing to each other from great distances, and when they come together it is amazing that one can hear their joy and excitement in the way they speak to each other.
Yesterday, I spent a little more time with the birds as they too focused on their nest building but I ensure that I give the pair privacy and not disrupt their activities.
