Three recent fledges from the JSMB nest box.
perched on telephone pole bolt/hardware. Saw at least 3 today
Three found near each other. Flying around, feeding, vocalizing. They seemed like they were playing with each other, flying around, doing acrobatics around, brushing each other off perches.
Circled over Franklin Square and headed south . Good look out 8th floor office window.
The order Falconiformes is a group of about 290 species of birds that contains the diurnal birds of prey. The Falconiformes have long been thought to represent a natural evolutionary grouping, but three recent studies of their DNA suggest that their similarities are convergent. In each study, falcons are related to songbirds and parrots, and the hawks, eagles, and vultures are closer to woodpeckers and kingfishers.
