Post heat wave park visit - July 29th, 2016

The local heat wave broke with some rain this morning. I looked for the Washington Square Park Red-Tailed Hawks in and outside the park but didn't see any of them.

A fellow Hawk-watcher had better luck and saw all the Hawks over the last few days. The fledgling was seen atop One Fifth Avenue a couple of times over the last couple of weeks (at the adults' perch) which is pretty exciting considering how tall that building is.

I had some nice nature-watching during my visit even though I was Hawkless.

It may not look like it but this squirrel was relaxing:




This tree doesn't get direct sunlight often so it has a nice coating on it:
