6/5, Crowded Nest

All three young red-tails were still in the nest at the Cathedral of St. John the Divine as of early Sunday evening. All three seem to have their feathers grown in, so it's difficult to guess which is which based on feather development or behavior. Presumably Eldest will be the first to fledge, but it hasn't done so yet.

During the time that I was able to watch on Sunday, the trio were mostly concerned with preening. There was little flapping.
