Early July 2005

Sat July 2, 05
I could not get to any of my vantage points at Central Park South today since everyone is out for the holiday weekend. At The Boat Pond I saw a hawk fly north and landed on the Oreo Building. He/she soon disappeared after being constantly harassed by what I believe was a kestrel. I went over to The Beresford by way of The Ramble—quiet in there—but only saw what appeared to be Pale Male flying around the center tower for a few minutes but he never perched anywhere visible while I was there.

Very wet and soggy on Jr's nest. Charlotte returned just before the showers began again around 6PM. She fed one baby while the other laid flat on the wet nest. As the rain started the sleeper quickly huddled under his mom. The other chick was determined to take the wetting directly and hardly budged for the hour and more that it lasted.
