Received from Murray Head at 1:37 p.m. yesterday [June 12, 2013]:

The 3rd [of Pale Male's nestlings at the Fifth Ave. nest] fledged at 1:20pm ... And according to the witness, flew up and up and away.

and finally...

Today  June 13, 2013-- from Beth Bergman's blog - :

All three hawk kids have fledged. About 2pm one was near 72nd street screaming for food, this second baby was below the nest also calling for food and the 3rd kid was high in a tree about one block further north being screamed at by bluejays.  Pale Male dropped food into the nest and called baby #2,  but baby didn't have the skill to fly up to to the nest.
