When I arrived the rehabbed fledgling was on a railing on the path that follows the East Drive around 87th Street. It had a group of folks getting very close with smartphones, and then tried to catch a rodent. It came up empty and jumped back on the railing before flying across the street to the east side of Fifth Avenue.
I learned she had flown back and forth three times in the afternoon. She' not getting much height while flying. She's basically gliding and doing very little flapping. Let's hope she gains some strength and starts getting higher soon.
