Confirmation

Some happy news - official word has come in from the Ageloff Towers that, as of March 26, hawks Christo and Dora have an egg!


You can see a rat snack to the left of the egg and it looks like the bottom of the nest is lined with paper.


It's not clear when Dora laid the egg, although I suspect it was March 23 as that was the first day she spent sitting in the nest. It's possible she could still lay more.

So, if we look at the stats from last year, the hawks are about a week earlier laying the first egg, and we can estimate it will take around 36-40 days to hatch.  That means we can probably plan a 'Welcome to the World, Baby Hawk' party around May 1.

  1. Wow! How wonderful for the person who lives in that apartment. They must be amenable to photographers visiting?

  2. To clarify, the photos came from the building, I did not take them. But, yes, what a privilege to be chosen to host wildlife in this most un-natural setting.

  3. Yes... sorry not to clearer... what I should have said was I am glad the person who lives in the apartment is either willing to take photos and share, or allow others to. So cool.
