Two Months Later, by Charles Woood


It had been 9 weeks since I saw Mom or Dad who live in a small field that borders one of Los Angeles County’s concrete ‘rivers’.  At dusk today, Monday, I saw Mom.  I stood partially concealed under a bridge in their field.  I saw Mom on her routine walk back to her nest area.  She hesitated when she noticed my leashed dog, Holtz, and me.  She then quickly left.

I had entered their field hoping to see them.  I had failed to see any of them the last few times I visited.  I’m curious to know if Dad has remained for this year’s breeding season.  I also wonder if the two youngsters are still present in their field.
