Going East

Bond and Broadway

I was walking down Mercer and at 3rd Street heard Bluejays calling at Broadway and walked over.  I ran into the woman behind the Rogerpaw.com blog, who had seen an adult  high on a building.  I then saw the new male on a streetlamp down Broadway.  We then saw a crowd in front of the Face Gym.  There was a fledgling on the ground.  While the woman behind the Rogerpaw.com blog called Bobby Horvath, I called Ranger Sargent Rob Mastrianni.  Both of them gave us the same advice.  Put the fledgling in a cardboard box and wait for help.

I trash picked and found a box.  The bird was placed in the box and we waited.  While we waited, both adults kept watch, changing perches every so often.  The mother had prey.

Ranger Rob arrived, transferred the bird to an animal carrier, and took the bird off to be examined.

An exciting day.  I gave up drinking for June, but I think I'm having a martini tonight.

This means two of the three fledglings are in rehabilitation with one fledgling still in the greater Washington Square Park area.
