Positive ID this morning (7/1) on female BUOR tending to her nest with the
male BAOR. In my fuzzy shot of the female BUOR below, she has some insect
in her beak, which I observed her bringing into the nest. I was also able
to photograph the male BAOR with an insect in its beak, which he, too, then
brought into the nest.
