Female was out of the box when I checked at 5:50am, but returned at 6:11am. Maybe with a bird fragment (started feeding owlets, anyway).
PM, T=72F, clear and warm
First food delivery by male was 8:50pm, a gecko, which he dropped into the mouth of one noisy owlet. 8:59pm second gecko from the male. 9:15pm, third gecko. 9:44 Fourth gecko from male. More followed, but I was not watching. Owlets are rasping loudly, doing a bit of wing-flap exercises in their spare time, and competing for food. It looks like everybody is getting something to eat.
