Our red-tailed youngsters have fledged the nest and are doing well. I am continuing to post news updates and images from the field on their progress. The first fledged on May 31st and the second June 5th. I have included two photographs of the fledglings taken June 5th. The photo of the youngster on the ground is in front of a parked car, it has now learned that the ground is not the best place to stay.

I also wanted to let you know that I will have a photo exhibit of this hawk family that will open at Queens College in the Benjamin S. Rosenthal Library Rotunda on June 11 and run through August 31st. "The Urban Red-Tailed Hawk" will present a collection of images captured over the last four years with an up-close perspective. There is additional information on my website regarding the exhibit, admission is free.
Best, Jeff
