The 19th year of Fatherhood commences*
The news was first reported on the PaleMale.com web site:
"Octavia appears to have laid at least one egg. She did not leave the nest all afternoon."
And that news was reported to me this morning by photographer Murray Head. Many, many thanks, Murray!
* Pale Male's first chicks were hatched in 1995. Next year we'll have to celebrate a 20th anniversary.
