Tompkins Square Park Fledglings
Hunting Begins On Fifth Avenue

Washington Square Park Fledgling

The Washington Square Park Fledgling was having lots of fun this evening.  I found it on top of 2 Fifth Avenue where it played in the wind realizing that if it put its wings out, it would have lift off.  He then went down into the park chasing a group of pigeons and ending up on the Judson Church roof.  That's a great deal of flying.

Later, he made some a few trips around the east side of the park, and even went over to the roofs of Washington Square North. 

From the pictures, you can see his primary and secondary feathers that hadn't grown in when he fledged look good now.  The only feathers with issues are two tail feathers.  It's nice to see him looking less scruffy.
