Max Eats a Sizable Pigeon
Max caught a pretty sizable pigeon this morning and ate half of it with great gusto before taking the other half into the nest. I got a couple of looks at his leg band, but just could not make that bottom letter out. It looks something like a tipped over E, but when Mary and I looked up b/g, 5/*E in the falcon database, that number came back as a female. Hmmm. Well, I’ll keep trying. I did verify that the top number is a ’5′.
All seemed normal with the pair. While I was there, they got a pigeon, a starling, a warbler and some sort of dark brown bird (half bird). They were really packing a lot of food into the nest. The babies must be getting pretty big!
