5/29, St. John the Divine

Thursday evening at the St. John's cathedral hawk nest was quiet. The three nestlings spent their time sitting around and watching the skies.

With some pecking at food and plenty of preening. But hardly any wing flapping at all.

Even after just two from the previous visit, the change in the darkness of their head feathers was noticeable. Even the youngest's head feathers were filling in.

If the cathedral nest sticks to its "usual" schedule, first fledge should occur the end of next week.

The Urban Hawks blog also has some video from this evening.
