This is the only picture I have of the hawks from today. Pale Male. The babies were very quiet . I saw one baby soaring over the east drive on 79 th street .
I will try again tomorrow after work.
And indeed Stella did go out again today and had much better luck.
Hamilton report for 7/21/2014
7:03 PM Fledgling on Backstop 6 of the Great Lawn.
7:21 PM Play ball!
TANGENT- There is something about a ball that tends to attract the attention of the young of many species and sometimes the not so young as well. Robin of Illinois sent in a video of a turtle and a dog playing ball. And the turtle takes no prisoners...
7:24 PM Back Stop 4
What did I say about balls? Guess who has the best view of the ball game? I remember one afternoon in Morningside Park when both of Isolde and Tristan's eyasses sat on the ball field fence side by side and watched the game for awhile.
7:25PM Play ball.
Fixated on the ball yet again. I love it.
THE RETURN OF LITTLE BROWN BAT!
I came around the corner of the house to turn off the outside water spigot and hanging on the wall of the house was Little Brown Bat. I made a bee line for the house and the camera.
2:11:06 PM When I got back little bat had gone round the corner to the N wall and was climbing up the wall by way of the wisteria.
2:11:13 PM Little Bat leaves the wisteria for the brick.
2:11:15 PM He's moving far faster than the last time we saw him.
2:11:18 PM He's really climbing quite fast now. But why is he out and so exposed in the daytime in the first place?
2:11:23 PM It looks like he's heading for the eaves of the house which makes sense. There will be shade there most of the day.
2:11:35 PM Still putting forth a yeoman's effort.
2:12:01 PM Almost to the eaves!
Blogger doesn't want to take anymore photos on this post so stay tuned for The Mystery Of Little Brown Bat.
