7/15, St. John the Divine

Fledgling on a Lamp Post - 4040

Red-tail fledgling One revealed himself Monday evening by screeching for food and/or attention. I found him perched atop a lamp post on the middle walkway through the close on the south side of the cathedral.

But a few moments later, he (and I do mean "he" — the bird looks a bit smallish and so likely male) flew over to the pulpit in the center of the lawn.

Where he stayed for quite a while, staring intently here and there, although mostly at things on the ground.

If he hasn't made his first hunting attack yet, he's working himself up to it.

Last view from over by the Peace Fountain.
