All Three Fledged At Fifth Avenue
Fifth Avenue Trio

Washington Square Is Late

The Washington Square Eyass should have fledged a few days ago, but seems in no rush to leave.  It looks ready to go, except for two primary feathers (5 and 6) on the right wing.  This is similar to the retarded growth of a few feathers with last year's eyass.

It might take the parents to get this hawk to fledge by teasing it off the nest with food dropped not on the nest but nearby buildings.  We'll see what happens over the next few days.
