I caught up with one of the Washington Square Park fledglings at 3rd Street and Broadway with the help of some American Robins, who were not happy to have a predator in their neighborhood. Their alarm calls helped me find the youngster on Hayden Hall.
The fledgling I saw looked well fed, and was doing a good job of maneuvering between various building locations.
The map below details sightings for the day:
- Hayden Hall window sills and a nearby tree at 3rd Street and Broadway
- A ledge across 3rd Street
- Hayden Hall's Roof
- Education Building Flagpole (mother) and roof (new male)
- Building on Mercer Street and Washington Place, where a fledgling was sighted earlier in the day and where the mother perched
- Air conditioner where mother first brought a pigeon and then used as a perch
For context, N. is the nest location and P. the Pless Building roof.
