Smarty-pants is back

He hops down onto the entrance ...

... and surprise, surpries, he enters the box!

He has a good look around.

He examines the floor of the box.

Now what's this? It looks like the start of a nesting wriggle.

Definitely a nesting wriggle! Smarty-pants is female!

She looks at the exit ...

... and 15 seconds later ...

... she leaves.

This time it is Scruffy who visits again.  I wonder if Scruffy is a female too?

In Box1, Ella is bringing more nesting material to the box.

It's still in her beak!  She eventually just drops it as usual.
