Fledgling flying back to the nest tree

Observation details

Four fledglings. One of the fledglings flew in a small circle and then returned to the nest. Then, at 6:45pm, the same fledgling flew to the tallest tree by the cafe. A parent flew by, but didn’t land. A crow harassed the fledgling for a little while, but the fledgling held its ground. Ten minutes later, the fledgling flew to another tree, then back to the nest tree. An adult dropped food off at the nest at 7:11pm.
