Fifth Avenue Action

As is the usual pattern for the Fifth Avenue Fledglings this time of year, they have roamed north to the areas around the Great Lawn.  Today, one of the fledglings ran me all around from the Hamilton Statue, to the East Pinetum, to the Great Lawn, the two ball fields above the Great Lawn, the West Pinetum including a picnic table, across the 86th Street Transverse to the Bridle Path south of the Reservoir, Seneca Village, and finally the Locust Grove where it caught and ate a pigeon.  What a great day!

Tompkins Square Park Fledgling

The surviving fledgling at Tompkins Square Park is doing great.  From all accounts the bird is active, enjoying hunting and flying around the park.  I missed all this great behavior when I visited on Saturday.  The fledgling had chosen a branch and was staying put.   For two hours!  I did get some nice portraits, but I was hoping to watch it hunt!
