Three’s Company

After many days of sparse sightings, i finally got a break…

Sept 10

This is the first time in 3 years of tracking these Red-tails that I’ve seen Papa, Mama and a kid up on the Church’s cross.  This is a rather rare and unique sighting.

Of course, Eden had to prove to Mama and Papa that she could hunt.

Mama – “there goes my baby… off to hunt” (reminds me of Moshu saying this as Mulan  went off… except it wasn’t to hunt 🙂

Minutes later, Eden came back… empty.  Sorry Mom.  I missed!

Don’t get upset Mom.  Here, let me preen your feathers…

Papa – Get back out there and hunt!

Yes, dad!

Sorry. Still nothing!

That’s all right kiddo…

Eden is as big as her mom and so I think she’s a she.

See y’all later.  Remember, don’t wail.  No, I won’t be delivering any food.

The last time I saw both kids was on 8/19/2013.  I’ve only seen one since.

The trend so far has continued.  One juvenile seem to stay behind.  Will Eden stay until the next breeding season?

Stay tuned.

Ciao
