Had to wait on Lyle this morning. Rufus got away from him, and he wouldn’t leave without his bird.
It took a while, but Lyle managed to pinpoint Rufus’ new roost. We would send our drones up, but fear they would be counterproductive.
And Rufus appears to have acquired some new friends, so it may be very difficult to win him back.
We must have scouted the whole area for about five hours straight. We just couldn’t get close enough.
After much thought, Lyle came up with the strategy. Since one of Rufus’ new companions is female, we’ll concentrate on her capture. Lyle says that once we have her, Rufus will fall right in line. Sounds reasonable, now to execute.
