According to the Internet (the source of all information in the universe) that's Dad on the nest and Mom on the pole. She was coming in to relieve him of duty when I surprised them by returning to the barn because I ran out of hay to put in the nest boxes for the geese and chicks. I was beginning to suspect that the brown lump next to Mom was more than just part of the nest when it moved from one side of the nest to the other. Last night it was on the left. Today, the right. It's difficult to see because it's dark in the barn. I tried binoculars but I'll have to find another pair. They were too close to see them well enough.
