Nest Box Travels

In order to try to let Mary Ann and Stucliffe become a bit more acquainted with the box, we decided to let them jump in and out by opening up the back trap door and letting Mary Ann sit on it. It took several hours, and then finally, Sutcliffe went out the other way and left the cage! Prior to doing that he was feeding her, through the hole. Hopefully this experiment will result in nest box familiarity and subsequent eggs. However, I have a bit of a concern that we are overly meddling.
