Settling Down

Now that most of the crop of baby raptors have fledged, things are quieting down. Unless of course you are an American Robin, in which case you are going to be pipping your head off as these fledglings explore their new surroundings. That is how I managed to find 2 baby kestrels from the 119th Street nest. They were so active it was hard to get a pic, but one did come out into the sun for a bit.

Further down the street, it was the same situation and I was able to locate 2 of the 3 Divine babies.

Meanwhile at Riverside, only one baby could be found.

Although later that day I watched a parent climb with a juvy to about 1000' and practice stooping. Should be fun watching all these guys learn the ropes.
