Games hawks play

More photos from June 28, which was a really active day for the Avenue A hawk family.

Dad Christo took a break from delivering dinner to chill out on top of a rooftop tower on 4th Street for a minute.  But one kid wouldn't let him have any peace.

This is either Fledgling #2 or #3.  A short while later, its sibling (either #2 or #3) joined it on a neighboring rooftop.

Look at me as I show off my prowess perching on barbed wire...

This bird loves that barbed wire.  I've seen it several times trying to balance on it.  This photo was taken three days earlier.

Meanwhile, Fledgling #1 opted for a less dangerous activity: hanging out with a trio of pigeons on Avenue A.

This one takes after its dad, showing off for the spectators.
