They seem familiar with the balcony! it was one day last week when we came home, parked on opposite side of bldg, and heard a dove cooing from a roof next door. Guess she was saying, "Hi, we're baaaaack!"

It wouldn't surprise me if it is the same pair. I could be wrong, but it seems they'd be creatures of habit as much as we humans tend to be. If something worked for them before, why not go back and do it again?

I have been assuming my bluebirds are the same ones that successful use the same birdbox every year.

Yes, these two seem quite at home, visiting the spot every day, and sitting on the rail. They have not started to build a nest but it has been very cold here this month.
