Today, I arrived to see one of the young fledglings surrounded by people. The fledglings aren't scared by people, but that doesn't mean we can surround them and gawk at them like they were in a zoo.
The two fledglings need to learn to be great hunters before they leave their parents. If we trample the underbrush, whistle at them, and stand directly under them with our iPhone cameras, the fledglings are going to be spending their time worrying about us and we'll have scared away their prey.
I guess New Yorkers are sadly, just happy to love these hawks to death.
