Report from the Hawk Bench

Both hawks were considerably more active today, with more frequent exchanges occurring. Then, at a little after 3 p.m. Pale Male and Lola each stood at the edge of the nest, looking down into it for about 20 minutes. This can definitely be called a new behavior and caused considerable excitement at the Hawk Bench. When Lola settled back on the nest she seemed to be sitting higher for the rest of the afternoon.

What did all this this mean? Tomorrow should tell.
