Mystery Hawk at Washington Square Park
Washington Square Park, Day 3 Of Watching The New Male

Tolerated Male Hawk at Washington Square Park

The new adult male in Washington Square Park made visits to a number of buildings on all four sides of the park, including the Education Building, Silver Building, 1 Fifth Avenue (while the adult female was there, he's on the left), 2 Fifth Avenue, Lipton Hall, Kimmel Center and at dusk the nest briefly.

So, he may end up being Bobby's replacement. The female didn't exactly welcome him, but she tolerated him today.

The eyasses look close to fledging.  The first could leave the nest any day now.  One slipped and had to work to to stay on the ledge this afternoon.

It would be great if the male settles in and helps with post-fledging feedings and hunting lessons later in the summer.
