June 8, 1999 -- Calypso is trying to stare down Hal Schraeder of the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources as he approaches to grab the chicks for the banding.  It's not unusual for the adults to remain nearby or make aerial attacks as the chicks are taken away, but for one to actually stand on the nest box during this time is quite a rare experience.
