Fifth Avenue

I thought I'd spend some time where it all began, Pale Male's nest on Fifth Avenue this afternoon.  It was uneventful with Pale Male giving Octavia a break just before he went off to roost. 

Octavia is an impatient hawk.  She leaves the nest as soon as she sees Pale Male nearby.  She doesn't wait for him land on the nest like other females in the city due. It's kind of funny, as though she's saying "I've been waiting, where have you been?"
