Junior and Charlotte

Here's one of many letters received during the past few days:

Hi Marie -
Thanks for keeping us informed about the tension surrounding Pale Male/Lola's nest and the "unhatched". However, if I remember correctly didn't Lola and Charlotte start sitting about the same time? What is happening with Charlotte?
Eagerly awaiting your email, VJ

Dear VJ and all the other readers inquiring after Junior and Charlotte: Charlotte laid the first egg four or 5 days after Lola began sitting a mile to the north. Everything seems to be going fine for the downtown pair. But no hatch yet. You can be sure that there are people keeping an eye on the Trump-Parc hawks, and I promise to let you know as soon as anything happens.

I'll also keep you posted on the latest thinking about what might have caused another nest failure at 927 Fifth.
