Raleigh Raptors 04/28/2012

A rare Saturday in the city.   I didn’t go there for the RTH’s, but actually visited the Nature Research Center.  I have 3 words to describe the NRC.  Nice, Nice, Nice!  However, after 5 minutes in the NRC, there was a fire alarm and everyone had to evacuate.  Raleigh’s finest was on the scene a few minutes later.  Luckily, it was a false alarm :).

I didn’t get much of a chance to observe the RTH’s as I was mostly in the NRC, but Mama was in the nest and at the top of the steeple.  A Blackbird(?) did the harassing, but like all other non-raptors, Mama just ignored it.

The eyasses’ feathers are no longer cotton-white, but looking more greyish.  Guess they’re growing up fast.  Still haven’t seen any more than 2 eyasses though. Hopefully, next week we can tell if there’s only 2 or if there’s more.   At this time last year, all 4 eyasses, (“The Fab-Four”) were up and about.  Maybe the current batch of eyasses are a week younger.  Stay tuned…
