Fledging and Holyoke’s Red-tailed Hawks: Spoke too soon

A check of the nest at High and Dwight streets this evening found that my earlier post was off-base — the young hawk was on the nest, and proceeded to hop up a flight of the fire escape before leaping up to perch on a railing.

Both adults made visits to the nest, with one dropping off what appeared to be a squirrel.

The little hawk took a break for dinner, and then headed back up to the railing as gray clouds cruised through the sky overhead.
