Softball, Soaring and Mom
One Away?

Playground and Softball Field

One of the juveniles and the father spent time around the playground by the river south of the small ballfield before the juvenile spend about an hour on a chain link fence that surrounds the ballfield.

The juvenile drew quite a crowd while it was on the fence.  I have mixed feelings about all of the gawking.  One one hand, it helps educate New Yorkers that we have hawks in the city, but I worry that the crowds stress the juveniles, interrupt their hunting and habituate them to humans.
