Washington Square Fledgling
Two Off, One to Go at Fifth Avenue

Hat Trick

Three nests had fledges today, Fifth Avenue, St. John the Divine and Washington Square.  For Washington Square it was the second fledge. 

This evening, I got to see the first and second Washington Square Park fledglings.  The first fledgling had made it to the safety of the NYU Pless Hall roof.  The second and newest fledgling was doing its best to hide in a small tree west of the Bocce Court.

Both fledglings looked healthy.  (You know you've watching hawks to long when you study video for signs of Frounce.) The second fledgling seemed to be having some trouble getting to higher branches, but that's not too unusual for a hawk's first day off the nest.
