We've had a hazy heat wave over the last several days which deterred my Hawking. I tend to get woozy in that kind of weather so apologies for the extended Hawk break.
Fellow Hawk-watchers have seen the Washington Square Park Hawk family doing well.
I saw one of the adult Hawks circling a block south of the park but didn't have my camera ready at the time. It was gone by the time I got closer.
I caught up with the fledgling this morning on the east side:
He flew right across the park square and into the western trees:
Some Blue Jays were bothering him so he escaped them by flying to the park arch:
Up to the top:
Off after a minute:
He then landed on Silver, by the same window he rested at the first day I saw him post-fledge:
A Red House Finch flew near and landed by the Hawk (as usual!). The Finches seem to enjoy the Hawks. I've never seen them dive-bomb or bother them.
The fledgling walked along the window ledge to the corner:
He cried a couple of times and then took off southward (crying as he flew):
I looked for him and to see if he was following an adult but didn't find any Hawks after that.
