6/12, Riverside Falcon Nestling

Checking on Riverside Church on Wednesday, I determined that there must be a peregrine falcon nestling hiding on the scrape ledge some 300 feet up. There was an apparent food delivery, and while both parents were in view away outside the scrape, there was a spate of vigorous motion on the ledge, including a couple possible wing flaps.

There was less activity at Riverside on Friday, with neither parent to be seen in the area during the hour that I was in the vicinity. The scrape itself looked very quiet, but belatedly, I discovered that there was a nestling perched on the back of the lion's head gargoyle that marks the scrape site.
