A death in the family and Thanksgiving has prevented me from posting much over the last few weeks. On Saturday, I got to see the male of the Washington Square nest, Booby keep watch over Washington Square, keep a Peregrine Falcon (or possibly a Merlin) out of the park, and got to roost in a favorite spot off the Square.
There was no sign of Violet, which is common. For those following the news, Violet's leg has gotten worse. The situation may not have a solution.
(I have seen a number of emails where there were personal attacks against individuals. This isn't helpful. While there may have been some misjudgements and lost opportunities, I don't think anyone intentionally did anything that wasn't in Violet or her eyass' best interest.)
