6/21, Playing Hard to Get

Gabriel and Red-Tail Fledgling

The cathedral red-tail fledgling could not be found for over an hour Monday evening. Just as I had given up and was trudging west on 113th St., I looked up to discover that he was perched on Gabriel's head.

Seconds later he was in the air and scaring the bejabbers out of the pigeons on the roof of St. Luke's hospital. He perched briefly high above the emergency room, then took off again to somewhere out of sight.

Pigeon activity suggested he might have remained somewhere atop the hospital complex. However, that might also have been caused by what looked to be a kestrel who circled over the area a few times.
