On the antenna it’s Zena, left, with the paler male to the right. March 18, 2012, afternoon...
The image of the nest and its (then) current tenants is from Sunday March 4th. Pale Male on
the left with an
attentive Zena. A week or so before the end of June the 3 hatchlings were flying.
Not for long...
That's when the great matchmaker of the realm of raptors introduced Octavia (next).
