I noticed a wee bump on NYU's Education Building, a structure outside the southeast corner of Washington Square Park. It turned out to be the first Hawk baby to have fledged:
A fellow Hawk-watcher had seen the two fledglings hanging out together at or below the Education Building so I was careful to scour that facade.
I didn't get to see the 2nd fledgling today though.
Airing out its feathers:
It flew off after 8 minutes:
It soared magnificently across the street:
A dragonfly whizzing past:
It moved to a different part of the railing after 6 minutes.
View of the fledgling from the park corner:
It perched for another 14 minutes:
Sadie was on One Fifth:
Tucked down, head peeking up:
Bobby was on NYU's Goddard Hall, a building in front of the Education Building:
I lost him as he descended below the Education Building and to the Goddard roof.
I walked around a bit then heard Blue Jays squawking up a storm in the trees near me.
I looked to see if they were upset about a Hawk. Bobby flew right out of the trees at that point and landed on Goddard again, stick in tow:
He took it to a regular Silver Center ledge:
He then brought it right to the nest:
He returned to Silver a couple of minutes later:
Off and away:
Fancy nest near where I was standing:
I had been at the park for two hours and things seemed quiet so I left.
