Get Back, JoJo

October 27, 2014

For many weeks, Mama and Papa have been AWOL in downtown Raleigh or at least I haven’t seen them in their usual spots in downtown.  Not early morning nor mid-day or late afternoon.

But, today was different.  With the weather turning colder and the sun just barely above the horizon, I spotted 2 familiar figures on a familar spot.

Welcome back!

They had their backs to the rising sun, so I positioned myself in front of them.

While Papa preened, Mama turned her head and spotted something in the distance.  Note her raised head feathers.  Must have been something quite interesting.

Uh, oh.  I thought they would be flying out this way, but no, it was the opposite direction. No time to reposition.

And off Mama went…

Papa quickly unloaded some ballast and followed off.

and landed on the camera of the Post office building.

Good to see you guys back in downtown!

Hopefully soon, they will start rebuilding their nest and we should be ready for Raleigh Raptors 2015!

 

Ciao
