Quick Tompkins hawk update

After a six-day absence from Tompkins Square, Ten showed up in the park around 6pm Saturday.  She was seen again the following morning (September 4) in the SW corner of the park near the chess tables.

Tompkins fledgling #1

I have no idea where she was during the days she was away from the park, but she must have been in the area.  If anyone has any sightings of her or other juveniles (they have brown tails, as opposed to the adults who have red tails), please let us know.

This is the latest in the season I've seen any of the Tompkins hawk fledglings stick around.  In 2014, my last sighting of a youngster was on August 29.
