5/23, Washington Heights/Wright Park

Late Friday afternoon I passed by the J. Hood Wright Park nest. It seemed like hardly anything had changed since the previous visit.

Baby hawks sitting around the nest.

And mama perched on the railing above.

Yes, I see you, too.

Well, here's something new and exciting. The nestlings are starting to exercise their wings more deliberately.

Not quite a vigorous flapping yet, but getting close.

One last look from mama, and then time to move on.
