Tercel Telenovela

By UrbanAnthropod, March 27, 2011 10:06 pm

There is no hawk i the world more famous than Pale Male. Last week I wrote about the prolific procreative activities that Pale Male was engaged in with Pearl/Pale Beauty. While I found the name “Pale beauty” too laborious, she did have the looks going for her. She really made things difficult when it came to identifying the two “Pales”. You’d see one on a building and it would be too difficult to say who it was unless you could spot some field marks that were identifiable. To recap, Pearl came to the nest sometime in late January and had engaged in courtship flights with Pale Male. This lead to the heavy copulating in March and gave us watchers a lot to look forward to with respect to egg laying. Sometime in December, Lola disappeared and Pale Male took to hanging out with a dark young formel referred to as Ginger. She disappeared for a little bit and that gave the opening for Pearl to attract the attention of Pale Male. Just as Pearl decided to sit in the nest this week, she up and left. Without a hint as to what was going on in the hawk world, she was gone and the next day, Ginger returned!

There’s really no denying it, but Pale Male is a handsome bird.

What formel wouldn’t want to get together with the monarch of the Park?
Let me sleep!
But the real question remains… what happened to Pearl? And how did Ginger get back in the picture? most importantly, will they lay some productive eggs already?!

Ginger spent a fair deal of time on the nest re-decorating

Pale Male would come around and join her on the nest.

Just as he did the other day with Pearl, Pale Male got down to business multiple times throughout the day

Regardless of the mystery behind Pearl’s departures and the various soap operatic stories the watchers are coming up with, Ginger seems to fit in the nest more naturally than Pearl.

Let’s all hope for eggs that hatch in a month’s time. For the sake of the nest!
