Yet Another Sunday With The Riverside Youngster

I had expected the youngster at Riverside Park to have left the area by now, but it has other ideas.  It was in the area around the Hippo Playground (its official name) yet again.  It was eating a rodent when I arrived, so the video and initial photographs are a little graphic.

Mid-afternoon the fledgling went after a model airplane, but didn't end up touching it. It did upset the young man who was flying it, however!  The fledgling continues to draw crowds.  It perched on a few different trees on the Esplanade and over 100 people stopped and watched.

In the very late afternoon, both parents were seen over the Normandy Apartments.
