Washington Square Park Fledge Day
2nd Fledge at Washington Square

Calmer Day

Except for the fledgling begging for food, it was a quiet day in Washington Square.  The fledgling moved back and forth across building on Waverly Street.  Just as I got there mid-afternoon, it was on the Silver Building and flew to 1 Fifth Avenue, about a block away.  It was a nice strong flight. 

In the first week, we see the fledglings play king of the mountain on the buildings trying to get to a the high point.  This might be what's happening here.  The parents were aware of the fledgling but didn't feed it from what I could see.  They might be trying to lure it back to the park.

The eyasses still on the nest were being attended to by the parents, and when I went to look at them around 6 p.m. Rosie was just delivering a small rodent.

It was a good day to relax.  We might have some excitement on Sunday.
