Mystery Guest at the Hawthorne Hotel in Salem

Help us identify this guest Posted by Hello

As a hotel general manager, I just never know what kind of interesting challenge will be waiting for me at the hotel each day. Today was a first for me. A bird has tried to check-in without going through the registration process.

Now, for those of you who don't know, we are a pet-friendly hotel. Yes, the sixth floor is set-up for our guests who wish to bring their pets. But a nesting bird?? Who hasn't registered?? We're just not sure what to do about her.

We have called the Audubon Society for advice. She isn't quite in the room, just nesting between the storm window/screen and the guest room window. We obviously don't want her to be disturbed, but what about the guests who will rent that room next?

Hmmmm. . . . another interesting day in the life of the Hawthorne Hotel. I'll keep you posted.

    A better picture taker is really needed here a lot of the pictures seem out of focus. hopefully this guest will bring a lot of human guest and inquisitors into the hotel.

  2. Thanks for your critique. Sometimes I use others to do the photography, which may result in less than the best quality. I've posted some additional photos of the Mourning Dove which I think are a little more clear.
