Overnighting and sitting

By UrbanAnthropod, April 15, 2011 10:08 am

The news from the 5th Avenue nest is that Ginger/Lima is sitting. She’s taken to the nest since Sunday night. I visited and she was alternating between sitting high and burying her face in the cavity of the nest. The frequent fussing within the nest was a good sign. While this proved to be rather boring, I’m hopeful that the young formel will finally produce for our city.

Pale Male was noticeably absent. I had hoped to see some food drop-offs, but he was out of sight for a while. Finally, he emerged on the antenna of the Oreo building. He stood there for 2 hours!

As the sky darkened, he headed over to a railing and was eventually flushed into the trees by Cedar Hill where he would finally roost.

The first tree he took to was occupied by a pair of jays. He branched like a fledgling until he decided to remove himself from the flyby’s of the jays.

The light in the sky wasn’t totally gone. He watched some nearby squirrels. I can’t say what he was thinking, but his careful eye seemed to imply that he was deciding if it was worthwhile to hunt or sleep. (Yes, I cannot fully expect to understand what he was thinking but he was studying them!).
