Another Washington Square Park Fledgling Returned
St John the Divine's South Side

Fledgling's Second Day Back

The fledgling that has just been returned to the Washington Square Park was seen around 4th Street and Mercer most of the day.  The earliest report I saw was 10 am and there was a report it roosted in a tree there tonight.  It was on the ground briefly at 3 pm, which caused some alarm. 

I arrived around 4 pm, and first saw the new male, and then the mother, on a building a between Broadway and Mercer about 20 stories up.  Then some American Robins alerted me to where the fledgling was, on a street lamp, tucked inside a tree.  After about an hour the fledgling started branching on the tree to a more comfortable spot.  By then both adults were nowhere to be seen.
