No news yet

Photo of Charlotte on the nest by Bruce Yolton who writes:

Friday, it was back to dull evening behavior. (I wonder if the flurry of activity on Thursday was due to the unseasonably warm weather with temperatures in the 80s.)

Department of embarrassing mistakes:

Website correspondent Maria Carmicino writes about yesterday's New York Times photograph[on page B1] of the Trump Parc nest featuring a big, dark-headed bird:

Hi, Marie! I was thinking that it looked more like Charlotte. But the caption says that it's "perhaps the offspring of Pale Male." Or maybe the lighting is just playing tricks with the bird's coloration?


Bruce Yolton replies:

Of course it's Charlotte. On the web the caption is more general and correct, but not in the printed editions of the Times.
