They were separate. This is Sterling.
HK flew by with some fresh pine.
While Sterling watched.
Sterling also sat in the nest tree while HK performed some nestorations.
HK made two trips while I was there.
Sterling made a beautiful departure.
HK paused to watch. I am sure he is thinking how gorgeous she is!
Then HK left too.
HK flew right on by!
And landed down the street followed by some pesky Crows.
HK didn't stay long but gave a fabulous fly by as he departed!
HK was relocated on a tower a few minutes later.
He left several minutes later and I found him sitting on what appeared to be a squirrel nest.
He left and flew with soft material from there.
Back to the nest of course!
HK hopped out! I love it when this happens!
Then Sterling few over, very high up.
And that was enough to inspire HK to fly into the wild, blue yonder to join her!
The last time I saw HK today, he was sitting in a tree, waiting for Sterling.....again!
