2019 Manhattan Red-tailed Hawk Nest Update 17
Fledgling's Second Day Back

Another Washington Square Park Fledgling Returned

The fledgling found in a light well behind 15 Washington Place, was returned to Washington Square Park today.  Bobby Horvath and Cathy St. Pierre took great care of it at WINORR.  It was banded on the right leg.  (The previously released bird was banded on the left leg.)

The released bird was very energetic, moving quickly from branch to branch, before changing trees.  It then flew a full block south to 3rd Street. I had to leave the park around 1:30.

The Rogerpaw.com blog has coverage of what happened later in the day.  It will be interesting to see how things work out over the next few days.
