After seeing both Mama and Papa together last week, they went AWOL again :). I guess it’s just all in the timing. Easter standard time has returned (Daylight savings time has ended) and the sunrise/sunset times have shifted and it gets late early out there.
At lunch time today, I saw something poking up on the Wells Fargo camera. Sometimes pigeons would use that too, but this one was much bigger than a pigeon.
Taking a closer look, it was no pigeon, or if it was, this would have been a mighty BIG pigeon :).
It was Mama, enjoying the blue skies, great sunshine and the breeze.
Mama stood there for quite a long time, looking around, no doubt for potential prey.
Breezy, gusty windy…
No sign of Papa. I waited for Mama to take off, but it looked like she had no intention of doing that anytime soon…. and I had to head back :(.
Oh, well. At least they’re still here. It shouldn’t be long now before they start building up that nest.
For y’all who are familiar with NY’s top Red-tail, Pale Male, here’s a recent article. Good reading stuff.
