Pale Male Brings Lola Take-Out

While birding at the Oven (a section of the Ramble on the shore of the Lake), I was enjoying the variety of birds which included, Canada Geese, Mallards, a Mourning Dove, a Red-bellied Woodpecker,  two Downy Woodpeckers, Blue Jays, Black-capped Chickadees, Tufted Titmice, a Fox Sparrow, four Northern Cardinals, two male Red-winged Blackbirds, a Rusty Blackbird, a Common Grackle, a House Finch, and lots of House Sparrows. 

Around 4:30 p.m. we spotted Pale Male with a rat circling over the Oven.  He then headed towards 5th Avenue. 

It was very cold. A group of us thought heading to see where Pale Male went with the rat would warm us up.  So, it was off to "The Bench" by the model boat pond. 

When we arrived we found both Lola (lower left) and Pale Male (upper right) on a 5th Avenue building around 77th Street.

Leaves the nest.

And heads north returning to Lola.
