6/15, Washington Heights

The two young hawks in the Washington Heights red-tailed hawk nest are ready to fledge any time. Near sunset on Saturday, there was lots of wing stretching from the younger bird and some serious flapping from the older.

The mother was around much of the time, although later on she took off, came back with some food, left, and then came back again.
