*Bonus Pics!* Washington Square Hawk baby the day before her fledge. Pics from June 9th, 2017

I had promised on fledge day that I'd post these photos sometime and the time has come! These pics were taken during the long Washington Square outing I had the day before she made her mighty fledge. The pics were taken over the course of six hours.

Looking out intently. Is this the moment of her fledge??


Nope!
