No problem! I think they do mate for life, they are seen in pairs during both breeding and non-breeding season. How wonderful to have spotted a couple!

@LauraMaria @SarahHiteWhitt Thanks! Looks like I've spotted both male (http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/609...) and female on the same fence. Do they form lifetime couples?
