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……

No Activity

Feb 25 The nest has been quiet and I haven’t seen the resident Red-tails for over a week.  Do they know we have a big storm coming tonight? Maybe.  I think that birds have a built-in weather system :) This was last monday Feb 23, not the big one that’s expected tonight. And this Peregrine…

Nary a Creature in Sight

Feb 19 It was a blamy :) 12 degress as I took my morning stroll at the Capitol.  Nary a creature in sight except for a solitary Blue-jay chirping away in the distance. The fountains around the Capitol were running and it was quite interesting to see.    By lunch time, I thought the ice…

Nest For Rent

Feb 11 freezing morning with the sun was just barely above the horizon. Guess who’s out early to hunt? The Visitor! The Visitor eyed on something and took off.  It had a ‘lock’ on its target. It was a squirrel by the railings on the south east corner of the Capitol.  He missed but he…

Landing 101

  Feb 6 2015 Red-tails have been quite active in the past week.  I saw a hawk in the distance by Moore Square Park. It was circling and then headed west.  I took a guess that he’d be landing at the spire.   They make it look easy :) Ciao JP
