4/23, Cathedral Nest

Isolde Returns to the Nest

Norman was apparently more pro-active in fatherly hawk duties early Friday evening. Normally seen for just moments at a time as he makes fly-by food deliveries, he spent some time babysitting the nestlings after 6:00. Isolde returned to the nest about 6:35 (above), and after a few minutes, Norman exited and Isolde settled in.

Switch-Off

Although the head of whichever parent was in the nest was often visible, not a lot more was to be seen. There was no feeding while I watched, and hawkwatchers who'd been there for an hour or two before I arrived didn't report seeing one either.
