The two fledglings relaxed on a hot, 90 degree day. I was at the Cathedral in the early afternoon on Sunday. Fledgling I was sitting on a fifth floor windowsill of a St. Luke's building half way between 113th and 114th Street on Morningside Drive.
Fledgling II was heard begging periodically, but took over an hour to find. It was in a tree on the south side of 113th about 20 feet in from Morningside Drive.
Both hawks looked to be doing nothing more than just trying to stay cool.
I hope you have enjoyed this series of posts about the St. John the Divine nest. It has been fun bringing a near daily report of the activities in Morningside Heights. Work commitments and vacations in June and July will prevent me from keeping up this daily pace. Expect to see posts only around the weekends for the next two months.
