Then suddenly, another "intruder".... Female #4. Her appearance at the nest on March 7 was after 2 midair locked talon fights with #3. When #4 dropped down into the nest a fierce battle ensued. The male was the victor and #4 moved to a branch, but did not leave. #3 has not been seen since. Eventually # 4 was accepted by the male and is the resident female as of now (about 2 weeks later). Female #2 made a brief appearance on March 20, but was made unwelcome by the male and she left. That more or less brings you up to date. This mate selection is unprecedented and is being watched by biologists all over the world.
