PEFAs settling into hard incubation – finally

It has been a gratifying joy to observe our new pair court, bond, & now establish a brooding routine. Whether it will actually produce anybody is a different story. This appears to be a very young pair, which often means insufficient fecundity. However, they’re doing everything right, & I’m extremely pleased with the sometimes touching behaviours of this new falcon. Time will tell. In the meantime, we should try to enjoy what we do have. I certainly am.

Fantastic group. Did a clean-up on the Anacostia with them right before I left DC for the West.
