7/1, North Woods Raccoon

Another hour's fruitless walk looking for the cathedral red-tailed hawk fledgling on Tuesday evening. A great egret was again fishing in the Morningside Park pond, but otherwise little of interest in that park.

Over in Central Park's North Woods, as I was chatting with a dogwalker, one of his dogs flushed a young raccoon up a tree not far from the Block House.

Even after the dogs were gone, the raccoon looked like it was going to stay put until I vacated also.

On sunday I had the youngster still in the trees just south of 110th. By Tuesday I could find no trace, although I did have Norman on top of 301 CPN till about 8pm. He then flew off to the Verizon Bldg.
