The young red-tails fledged from the Washington Heights fire escape nest between two and three weeks ago. Although I saw one of them two weeks ago, two visits since then have come up empty.
Well, almost empty.
Both times I spotted one or both of the adults, but not in the vicinity of the nest. Instead they were a few blocks to the east around Highbridge Park, either in flight or perching on the weather vane atop High Bridge Tower.
