Sadie has nest break then keeps close company with the babe - May 24th, 2017

Sadie was on a regular Silver Center Hawk perch when I arrived at Washington Square Park today:



A House Finch flew about and perched near her as the Finches do often with the Hawks:



As my luck would have it, I missed catching Sadie jump off her perch 10 minutes later while I was checking my camera settings.

Zipping around a corner:


She flew quite high before disappearing north on me.

Hello little dinosaur:


Time for a flap walk!






It was about 10 minutes later when I noticed Sadie sitting close to the babe on the nest ledge:


Head cocked to watch mom preen:







I left after about another 40 minutes since the excitement had died down and all was well.
