Squirrel Hunt

March 13 I walked around the Capitol and one of the workers there told me that he’s seen a hawk earlier in the day. It was also here a few days ago eating lunch and unmindful of all the people taking pictures.  Hmmm… I thought that would be the Inquisitor, but who knows.  So I…

Sky Blue with a Splash of Red

March 6, 2015 On my way home, I saw this fella on a familiar camera post.  It was Papa, but, nope. He wasn’t going back to the ol’ nest. Off Papa flew… I know not where.March 12, 2015 I haven’t seen Mama or Papa in a while and of course!  At this time of the…

Ain’t it foggy outside?

March 2, 2015 Looks like Mama and Papa RT have given up on the Capitol area.  The Inquisitor (AKA Visitor) has been in and out of the Capitol with impunity.   Preening… Hopping from tree to tree…  unchallenged. I have not seen Mama or Papa in the Capitol area in the past few weeks.  However……

Feb 12 I still stop by the nest everyday hoping that these RT’s are just late this year, but so far, nothing.  Oh, well. It was a cold noon-time walk but at least the lighting was excellent.  I looked up at the Wells and saw a Red-tail.  Looking a little lower, was another Red-tail! Yes,…

Hide and Seek

Feb 11 2015 just before the day ended and I was about to go home empty; ie no images of the Red-tails, I took a quick look at the spire… Lo and behold. A Red-tail.  As I took some photos (thru dirty glass and pointing way, way up), I noticed a small bump on the…
