The pair's arrival
Early last week, a viewer caught a glimpse of a different male bird at the nest box. This bird was actually a male that hatched in Grand Forks, ND in 2012. More than likely, this bird was merely stopping off on its way back to the region.
A few days later, the same male who has been in Fargo for the last several years reappeared. He was positively identified by his leg band *C/7.
