September 15, 2008

Tuesday evening was too cloudy so I didn't visit the park. The sun is back so I'm looking forward to the next few days.


Lola on the Great Lawn, Central Park.











































Palemale & Lola's nest shows a fragment of eggshell on it...











Palemale went to bed early on Monday evening in a different tree from the one he used over the last few weeks.



From where he perched he could see Lola as the light began to dwindle.



He settled on a final branch and the last protesting blue jay left him in peace.



Lola said goodnight to him and flew off to her own night roost, and when she did I was convinced that I felt a comforting silence that I know I'll be holding on to for the rest of my life.
