Brrr…. cold 15 degree morning. Nothing on the Capitol, but around lunch time…
I wasn’t sure who this was, but I had a hunch. Just when I thought the Visitor had left the area, here he was again.
Pffftt… hair ball….
The visitor took off and circled the Capitol a few times
It was hard to track this RT as he was directly overhead.
Although I couldn’t confirm that the RT on top of the PNC spire was one of the residents, it most likely was one of them.
The Visitor circled a few times on the other hawk… more like challenging it.
Finally, the other hawk took off. I wasn’t able to track them… but…
One of them flew back to the Capitol. It was the Visitor.
As what Han Solo would say ” I have a bad feeling about this”.
I hope Mama and Papa have not given up on the Capitol. The nest was again, unrenovated.
I was curious and wanted to find out if the RT on the spire was in fact, an adult. Thanks to photoshop, I got my answer.
Here’s the image with the luminance, saturation and exposure adjusted.
yes, it’s an adult RT being circled by a juvi!
