The First Fledge of 2013

... and so it starts
dancing hawk littles
pirouetting off the ledge,
caught in gust or puff or just in
exhalation of being
fliers and weavers of the wind - so
we gasp and laugh or cry at the
now you see me solid
and now you don’t -
now you see me hop-flapping
and now you don’t -
now you see me lifting my feathers
in my element
now you see me
and you see
a hawk.

So one swift hawk has safely flown and rests within a fir.
Two sweet hawks remain tonight waiting their awesome turns.
Now the one will contemplate beyond his fledge,
Whilst all our eyes upon “the ledge”.

Latest BOG Reports on D1:

From Twitter:
16:20, Realdruck (chatter) located D1 on window ledge about 2 feet up, then flew to ground again in #cornellhawks.

From Chat, Around 6:30 PM:
profd: Everyone -- I just returned from the D1 area
profd: D1 was nowhere to be seen
profd: the area is very quiet and there are no people around to bother him
profd: There are a lot of small trees and shrubs to help him practice laddering
profd: He is literally hanging out in a garden
profd: He even has a pond if he decides to take a bath

From Chat, Around 9:00 PM
gpeterson: From ponybird: I know this because after standing in driveway awhile I went & sat on bench in garden facing plant sci courtyard.
gpeterson: A couple walked thru & into courtyard on right side where I was sure D1 was, based on angry robin chirping & flying in.
gpeterson: I saw them taking pictures by a tree, so I went toward them & asked if they knew that one had fledged & people said not to get near.
gpeterson: Turns out they went in to find D1 & take photos.  D1 is in a small evergreen about 2/3 of the way in, along the right hand  wall sitting on a branch about 7-8 feet up.
gpeterson: Since I was part way in, I took a quick video of D1 to confirm, then skedaddled home to tell you.
gpeterson: The couple walked out ahead of me and I saw them over by Weill hall as I left. No one else was around so I think D1 is safe for the evening if it stays there.
gpeterson: So I will get vid from her as soon as I can. Also, just got off the phone with Karel.
gpeterson: He and profd are there now looking for D1.
gpeterson: profd will be back up there about 6 or 7 tomorrow morning and will call or text me if she sees anything.
gpeterson: Karel will call me back tonight if they spot D1.
