This female is 8 years old and raised one chick last year which was her first successful nest. She was seen in 2010, 2011 and 2012 but did not have a nest. Her name is Lily and her mate is JoJo. They were named by Susan Withnell's class at Linton Springs Elementary School in Skyesville, Maryland. We do not know when the eggs were laid as we arrived too late this season to observe that.
