Tompkins Square Park

The first sighting of the night was a hawk on the top of the Christadora House.  It was exploring the scaffolding.  The second was hanging out by the General Slocum memorial.  It started to hunt, and ended up by a family feeding squirrels.  Luckily the young hawk didn't catch any of them.

Near the end of the evening this hawk flew to Avenue A and 10th Street to beg a parent for food.  The parent wasn't having any of it, and so the young hawk tried to catch some pigeons.

Pale Male

I couldn't find the Fifth Avenue fledglings today, but did get to spend a good deal of time watching Pale Male on the bridle path just south of the Central Park Reservoir.  Octavia flew in and out briefly, but otherwise Pale Male just relaxed in the hot weather.
