I'm enjoying getting to know Pale Male's new mate. On Friday and Saturday, I got to see a great deal of her and Pale Male.
On Friday evening she was on the antenna of a building at 79th and Fifth.
On Saturday, I got to see a great show. It began with Pale Male eating a Blue Jay. After he was done eating his new mate arrived and they went up to the nest building. One sat on the roof and one was in the nest. It happened quickly and I could not tell who was who.
Then they moved further uptown. After a brief perch on a building on Fifth Avenue, Pale Male when to sleep on a tree at the base of Cedar Hill. His mate went to a nearby tree and played cat and mouse with a squirrel, before joining Pale Male on the same branch.
It was great to see them roosting together. I think she's the one.
