Hunting and Bedtime in Washington Square
Washington Square

Washington Square on Saturday

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.)
