Bumblebee Among the Echinacea.
This is the youngest hawk chick. It hatched two days later than the chicks who left the nest about a week ago. To me it looks uncertain about this whole flying thing. It mostly slept through the three hours of this hot sunny Summer afternoon on Avenue B, while I stood at attention videoing. I have video but it is really not worth the effort to edit and post. As this all-encompassing hawk nest drama reaches some conclusion I’ll be switching to covering as much of the park’s different ecology as I can. All the creatures deserve some attention. Don’t you think?
My extensive tree photography and video and mapping continues, but it is too time consuming to post frequent updates and still be able to record as much of the seasonal changes as I can. Immediately in the works is a video about the park’s giant Elm Trees.
