“HK Update”

The chick that fledged yesterday spent the day perched in an oak tree about 700 feet from the nest. His perch was approximately 20 ft up and afforded him good cover.

At approx. 10:20am HK flew again, alighting in a gum tree about 100 feet away from his previous perch. He is higher up now (approx. 50 ft) and has a better general vantage point of the Norfolk Botanical Gardens.
