5/16, Thursday at the Cathedral

A fine spring evening found both cathedral red-tailed hawk parents willing to hang about for a while. Isolde was in the nest feeding the babies, while the male was up on the roof, perched on Gabriel's horn.

It was a long feeding, finishing possibly 30 minutes after I first started watching.

After the meal, the babies did not collapse into an immediate post-prandial coma. Isolde didn't take off to remove the garbage either, although the male did disappear around this time.

I was only able to spot two of the nestlings, presumably "Eldest" and "Middle Child". One presumes "Runt" is pushed to the back of the nest by its bigger sibs.
