I found two of the fledglings in the Cherry Grove. I can’t tell them apart at this point but I suspect the one we see the most in this video is the youngest, only because it is still pretty clumsy. It came down from its branch chasing a rat, but ended up tossing clumps of dirt and branches.
The youngest hawk is still in the nest, about a week past when it was expected to fledge. Dad and one of the fledglings pays a visit. We hope it is OK in the summer heat.
The Red-tailed Hawk chicks in the nest overlooking Tompkins Sq. Park show off their aerial skills, catching a little bit of air over the nest. The oldest chick at this point is 43 days old. Some of the hawk experts I’ve talked to say they are still a few days away from leaving the nest.
The Red-tailed Hawk chicks over Tompkins Square Park are soon to leave the nest. Mom and Dad fly in together to bring them breakfast. People tell me hawk stories.
