Break In The Rain
Although it rained most of the afternoon, there was a nice break after 5:30. There was a feeding and later Lima had an annoying Northern Mockingbird try to get her off her perch. Everyone continues to look healthy.
Unfortunately, this isn't the case further uptown. The nest at CCNY has had the adult female die of Frounce, and an youngster who fell out the nest a few weeks ago died of a combination of internal injuries from the fall and Frounce. The second nestling, was found having prematurely fledged, under-weight and with Frounce, luckily in the early stage.
The Horvaths will be nursing the youngster back to health and if all goes well find wild family to return it to. One of the recent discoveries by rehabbers is that a young fledgling placed into another territory will instantly be adopted by the new parents.
