6/7, St. John the Divine

Saturday afternoon found just one hawk in the nest at the cathedral. Youngest apparently now had the perch on St. Andrew's head all to himself.

Three hours later, he was still hanging out in the same spot.

Again it took ages to find a fledgling, until finally Wednesday's fledge was spotted on the north transept.

Eventually he shifted back to St. Ansgar chapel.

A spot which unfortunately brought him back to the attention of the blue jays.

As sunset approached, he shifted up to the top of a small spire which the blue jays had been using as a perch.

And was still there as the sun went down.
