Eastern Kingbird Fledglings

This year has been disappointing for Red-tailed Hawks in southern Manhattan.  Although it most likely fledged, I can't find the fledgling from the West End Avenue/72nd Street Nest.  This leaves us only with a few fledglings to watch above 110th Street.

Since it's a hike to see the fledglings uptown, I've been spending time this last few weeks looking at other species that nest in the city.  There are lots of youngsters around.  These pictures are of and Eastern Kingbird family who were near the pier at Turtle Pond.  The snack was a dragonfly.
