Nest #4, 2019-20

Banded Bird # 4202 - Male

The male is now 13 years old. His first nest was in 2015-16 when he was 9. We followed this pair that year and again in 2018-2019. Go HERE if you would like to see what happened in those years. They have raised chicks, but not last year. We first saw them on the nest Nov 7th. Let's wish them well. Their names are Kora and Cosmos and were named by the students in Connie Schutte's class at Riverview Learning Center, Carnation, WV.

The chicks have been named Lily and Captain by the Bedminister Bobcats at Bedminster ES in Bedminster, PA. Their teacher is Peg Volak.
