Tolerance Of A Young One

While we wait to see if this year's 5th Avenue nest is a success, we all have been amazed by the tolerance Pale Male and Lola is showing towards a young hawk that was born last year.

The hawk flew south just east of Fifth Avenue, then circled near the nest and then went west over the model boat pond.  Lola didn't even get up when this happened and Pale Male didn't appear.  If the eggs hatch, I wonder if this tolerance will continue.

The pictures that follow are single image of the young hawk, and the rest, which were taken about half an hour later, are of Lola having a stretch.
