Darien Osprey

The Osprey platform out in Scot Cove in Darien, Connecticut only had one chick this year.  Nevertheless, it was fun going out to watch the family for a third year.

Central Park

Last Friday, I tried to find the fledglings from the Fifth Avenue nest but came up short.  I did run into a young adult Red-tailed Hawk in the Ramble.  It was very light colored like Pale Male but had very light eye color.

Sleepy Fledglings

At Tompkins Square Park, Monday evening, I got to see both fledglings and both parents.  It was late in the day and both fledglings were very sleepy.  I was lucky enough to watch one of them fall asleep and roost for the night.  Late July and early August hawk watching can be disappointing, so it was great to see everyone.
