Friday's Foto

Over the past week this year's offspring of New York City's numerous resident Red-tailed Hawks have begun to fledge. In Prospect Park last week the single nestling at Nelly's Lawn left the nest prematurely and is being looked after by Bobby and Cathy until his is strong enough to be returned to his parents care. The two above are Big Mama and Junior's two nestlings in Green-Wood Cemetery. Both have been actively hop-flapping and should be leaving the nest within days.
