On Labor Day weekend, the Riverside Park fledgling has been very active in the 90's of Riverside Park. I caught up with the fledgling on Sunday as it came to greet its father, who would have nothing to do with fledgling and let out a loud cry warning the fledgling to go away. (The fledgling had flown out of a tree on the Joan of Arc traffic island to join its father.)
The father then caught a rodent and consumed it in a tree near Riverside Drive and 94th Street. (Graphic pictures of the rodent being eaten below -- viewer beware.)
I then went further south to catch up with the fledgling. He was all over the area around the Hippo playground. He caught a rodent, went after other prey and moved about constantly giving those watching him a workout.
