"Confirmed this morning, about 7am, there are 3 hawk babies (more like teenagers now) in the park, with one who is particularly vocal (a high-pitched whistle/complaint). I think he/she was wondering where Mom and Dad had gone and when was breakfast?…"

Hi Debbie, This is Aimee from Fremont's. Thanks for your recommendation to check out downtown as a possible relocation spot. Based on your post, my husband and I hung out downtown and enjoyed a nice walk and a late lunch at P'tit Louis. While there are plenty of great spots, we were given an offer we could not refuse. Fremont's is now at 3000 4th St NW (more info on the Fremont's status). Now to get the news out... Thanks again! Cheers, Aimee

picture added in late March 08 is of paired/mated/just getting to know each other house finches, with another male (her previous boyfriend?) looking on... taken about March 24 through my window at work
