2016.1  Millie and Roy return for 21st summer

Millie and Roy touched down, returning from migration on April 22, 2016.  They spent the next week dancing, foraging and mating (several times).  As they walked the territory, Roy piled cattail stalks in Starter Nests that Millie ignored at first.  Then on May 6, they began incubation near the outlet of the pond, at the east end of their territory.
