For the last two weeks, the native fledgling in Tompkins Square Park has been lethargic and frequently seen closing its eyes during the day. Today, much to the relief of the hawk watchers in the park, she was back to normal.
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.
On Saturday, I caught up with the naturally born fledgling in Tompkins Square Park. She was undisturbed by the Punk Concert in the 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.
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.
