5/7, Trust but Verify

Isolde and Finial

Isolde seems to feel that is okay to leave the kids alone in the nest for longer periods of time. On the other hand, she's not necessarily wandering too far away.

During the hour that I was in the area early Friday evening, Isolde spent

  • 15 minutes in the nest with her babies.
  • 25 minutes, just before sunset, perched on the cathedral roof just 30 feet away from the nest.
  • 2-3 minutes perched on a hospital chimney, 175 yards away.
  • 10 minutes hanging out with Norman on a TV antenna atop the Towers on the Park, 400 yards from the nest.
  • 10-15 minutes somewhere out of sight.

As for the nestlings, they must have been sleeping off a good meal, as I only got a few brief glimpses of one of them.
