Washington Square Park

After a few days where the fledgling alluded hawk watchers, it was nice to get a text from a friend that she was quietly sitting in a tree on the west side of the park.  She moved around a bit while I was there and Bobby, her father came in to check on her.  But in general, it was a quiet afternoon.

Fifth Avenue Hawks

The three fledglings and their parents are doing very well, with them still staying around 72nd Street and Fifth Avenue.  They were all flying around when I was there for about an hour this evening.

Tompkins Square Park Fliers

Both the adopted fledgling and the biological fledgling are starting to feel at home flying around the park and exploring the ground too.  This evening it was one happy family with the adult male feeding both youngsters.  It should be a fun summer.

Tompkins Square Park Foster Child Adopted

The Tompkins Square Park foster child has been fully adopted by the parents in the park.  They're feeding it at least twice a day.  It however seems a little overwhelmed by the park and is still a little reticent to fly around.  It's preferring to branch around a tree rather than fly just yet. I'm sure this will work itself out over the next few days.

Thanks to the Horvaths for giving this youngster a chance to be a wild animal again.  Nothing is without risk, but giving this bird a chance to live a natural life is fantastic.
