Both WSP fledglings roosting together - June 26th, 2014

I could not visit Washington Square Park today but a fellow Hawk-watcher who did saw all four resident Red-tailed Hawks doing well. 

A special treat was the sight of both fledglings perched about six feet away from each other on a building top railing, all tucked in for the evening. 

It's nice to know that the rescued/returned fledgling quickly became part of the family again and is palling around so closely with his sibling. 

Each year's WSP Hawk broods with multiple babies shared that characteristic; the 'kids' would play, fly, perch, and hunt together during their stay in the park before leaving for good in the late summer.

So far it looks like this behavioral pattern will continue with this year's fledglings.
