A Day in the Life of a Chipmunk

July 7, 2015 The day began with Mama perched high and looking down.  But at what you ask? As I walked around the building to get a better view, I found Alvin on the parking lot enjoying breakfast. High above, Mama was watching and several crows were bugging her. Mama took off with the now-familiar no-wing flap…

Happy 4th

July 2, 2015 After weeks of only seeing Papa Red-tail, I was quite pleased when I saw a Red-tail land on the Wells but was surprised to see another Red-tail already on the Wells.  Vacation must be over. They didn’t stay long at the Wells and took off. But, whenever they’re in this area, the…

Still in Town

April 17 It’s been a while since my last post and I haven’t had much time to check out our RT friends.  But I’ve seen Papa and Mama RT flying around downtown.

Today was a Good Day to Fly!

March 24 At noon, I saw a solitary Red-tail flying northbound. It took a short pit-stop at the PNC spire then flew off further north.  I’m not 100% sure, but I think this was Mama. On my way home, I was greeted by one Red-tail flying over downtown… No. Make that 2 Red-tails.  The pair…

Flight of the Intruder

March 20, 2015 The morning was rather wet and there was no chance to see if our Red-tail friends were in the area.  The rain finally stopped around lunch time (as promised by Mr. Weatherman, thank you.), and I briefly saw one Red-tail adult streak across downtown and flew south. As I walked along Moore…
