5/18, Fine Friday

A fine but cool Friday evening again found the cathedral hawk nest fairly quiet. Isolde was perched atop the cathedral on Gabriel's horn.

But except for the top of a fuzzy head just visible through the sticks, there was nothing to see at the nest.

Isolde made her exit 20 minutes later. I made a pass through Morningside Park and found that the great egret was still around. When I returned to 113th St., one of the hawk nestlings was perking up.

He wandered (as much as one can wander) around the nest for about five minutes and then settled back down.
