Spreading their wings 

Our fledgling hawks have been learning to fly. Until they master flying they are staying close to Town Hall, under and in the landscaping. Please use the back entrance for the next week or two, as the mother hawk is watchful of her fledglings. 

For pictures of Vandi (Vanderbilt) and Stuy (Stuyvesant) please go to the photo gallery.
