Screen gems: Christo and Dora's 1st summer offspring enjoys hanging out



EVG reader John Coakley shared these photos... one of Christo and Dora's recent offspring — identified as Fledgling #1 — stopping by for a visit the other day at the Ageloff Towers...



...keeping the east-facing windows down (won't anyone think about the the cats?) might be a good idea.

Turns out that Fledgling #1 has a thing for window screens, as Goggla notes at Gog in NYC here. And Two Hawks NYC has video of Fledgling #1 in action.

Ha ha! What a silly goose. He'll get the (*ahem*) hang of it soon enough!

Why can't hawks be more like cats and kill rats just for the sport and not just for food? Also wonder if the hawk likes belly rubs?

Earlier this week in the morning I heard some horrific animal screams (bird or squirrel, not sure) on 5th St between 1st and 2nd. I'm pretty sure it was Christo, Dora or one of their fledglings catching a critter. I've seen one of the hawks in our backyard off and on this spring. When they show up, it's amazing how quickly the pigeons and squirrels disappear.

If they catch rats they'll be working overtime. And if they do catch rats get the realtors destroying east village please!!!

eastvillagesiren, it wouldn't have been one of the babies killing a critter yet. They are still in the stage where the parents drop off food for them. They will start getting trained in the art of hunting soon though.
