Brett Odom caught Charlotte sitting on the Essex sign today though he'd had no luck earlier when watching 888 7th Ave. Pale Male Jr. and Charlotte still haven't taken to their nest.

But when I looked carefully at Charlotte's pose, her posture, I realized that she seems to be perched in a heavier way. She looks more earth bound in her stance. Could she possibly be gravid?

Brett checked his notes and if last year is any measure, if they are are a clockwork pair, taking to their nest at exactly or nearly the same time every year, Tuesday or Wednesday will be the day.

NEWS--- James O'Brien,, is reporting that he thinks that Isolde has now taken to the Cathedral nest and is brooding. Let's hope the construction has moved away from the nest to some extent so she isn't flushed off this week.


And a link sent in from reader Karen Anne Kolling, in case you missed it...

Maybe everyone but me knew this, but - pesticides used to produce food in Latin America for the U.S. market are killing songbirds who winter there:

What's okay from Latin America - organic coffee, organic bananas.

What's not okay from Latin America - melons, green beans, tomatoes, bell peppers and strawberries, unless they're organic.
