6/27, J. Hood Wright Park

Saturday afternoon as the rain began to fall, I checked on the J. Hood Wright Park red-tailed hawk nest. The first of the three babies there fledged last Sunday and a second might have also. There was a possibility that one was still in the nest, but I found it empty.

Only one of the fledglings was out where he could be spotted, perched on a fire escape overlooking the park's basketball courts.

It was apparent he'd been fed sometime recently.

So he had nothing to do except perch in the rain and watch the neighborhood.

And try to void being frightened by that curtain flapping in a wide-open window nearby.

Stare at something on the ground a little more.

And then as the rain got heavier, time to vacate. Good idea.
