Fledgling Returns To Standard Haunts

The Riverside Park fledgling has returned to its old haunts around the 83rd Street playground and nearby buildings on Riverside Drive.  It was great to see the fledgling again, who looked healthy and well fed.

The father was also nearby for much of the evening.  The fledgling ended up on a few high buildings, but eventually fell asleep in a tree just outside the park on Riverside Drive.

Where the fledgling has been the last ten days remains a mystery!

(In addition to the normal playground, traffic and jet noise on the video, if you listen closely you'll hear the calling sounds of male cicadas.)
