Almost There...

I really thought there would be a fledge at 5th Ave. today so I ventured over to check it out. Even though this is the first hawk nest in NYC I watched, I've never seen a fledge here. There were a few moments when I thought it would happen, but it didnt occur. However I was treated to some righteous hawk action some of which I captured on video. The best moment was when Pale Male swooped in and caught a robin right near the closed concession stands. He promptly brings it back to the nest in the first clip in the video below. The second clip is of the two eyass fighting over the robin. Next is some flight training prompted by the strong wind. Last is Mom and PM circling above then landing in the nest with a pigeon. Then clip at 25%. Fingers crossed!
