NOTES: INITIALLY ADULT HAS RETURNED WITH FOOD, WHICH APPEARS TO BE SMALL CHERRIES. ADULT PASSES TEN SUCH FRUITS ONE BY ONE TO NESTLINGS AT CAVITY OPENING. ADULT, I BELIEVE, UTTERS CROAKING CAWS OCCASIONALLY HEARD. ADULT THEN ENTERS NEST CAVITY, REVER 2 ADULT(S); 2 NESTLING(S); MALE(S); FEMALE(S); Sex: 2 UNKNOWNSES, AND SITS HEAD OUT. YOUNG'S CRIES ARE MUFFLED. ADULT UTTERS NERVOUS 'CUT-CUT-CUT''S. THIS WAS ONLY TIME ADULT WAS SEEN TO ENTER NEST CAVITY. IN SECOND EPISODE ADULT ARRIVES (WING FLUTTERS) AND INTENSITY OF YOUNG'S CRIES INCREASE. ADULT LEAVES SHORTLY. Other Behaviors: Arrive, Establish Parent Young Contact, Beg, Care For Young.
