We are back to business as usual for C2 (Coley II) and his mate on the home front in Jamaica Bay. No more Soap Opera excitement, at least for the moment.
Over the past 10 days, C2 has only left the confines of Jamaica Bay once. On April 24th he visited Motts Creek in Woodmere, Long Island about 7 miles east of his nest in the area of Doxy Brook Fishing Park. This seemed to have been just a short fishing trip.
There is a second strange flight that I think might be satellite error. On April 20th, the data indicate that he was about 16 miles southeast of his nest out over the Atlantic Ocean. At that data point, he was recorded at 4,100 feet elevation and traveling at 80 miles per hour. How would you interpret this data point? Accurate or a blip in multi-million dollar technology!
If C2 and his mate do not have eggs already, they will soon. We will keep you posted as the family develops.
C2 and Dr. Bob signing off.
