Stella Hamilton was on the job once again.  Here is the second clutch eyass toddling around on the St. John the Divine Nest.

And here is her mother, the beautiful Madeleine...looking concerned.  From her activities and expression she appears to be a somewhat anxious and possibly  inexperienced Mom.  Next year should be better.  

Then Stella takes a trip downtown to check on the fledglings of Pale Male and Octavia.

Now there's a stealth but comfortable position.

Definitely an urban fledgling, walking the fence is no trouble at all.

Look at how the breast muscles have increased with true flying instead of just flapping.  A beautiful set of feathers.

Hanging out with an eye always peeled for their parents.

Standing tough.  Ready for all comers.

There's no better dinner than a nice rat.  Plus you're doing your ecological duty to rid the world of vermin.

Don't believe it's a rat?  See the tail wrapped around her beak!

Many thanks to Stella for all her work!

And stay tuned  for Pale Male/Pale Male Jr./Tristan DNA results!

Happy Hawking!
