Washington Square After The Rain

Monday was rainy in New York City but it stopped in time fore me to go to the park  Both parents were on the Silver Building, but were out of view from each other.  The female was on a high ledge on the southern corner and the male below a flagpole.  The eyass slept most of the time, but it did do a few jump-flaps.

Fifth Avenue Family

This evening I got to see the eyasses, Octavia and Pale Male.  Pale Male caught a pigeon and spent thirty minutes plucking it before delivering it to the nest.  Octavia returned to the nest after the food drop, but was not in a rush to feed the eyasses.

Grant's Tomb

After reports of one, then two, eyasses on the Grant's Tomb nest, it became apparent that there were three eyasses on the nest this week.  I caught up with them and both there parents this evening.

J. Hood Wright Park

I finally had a chance to get up to J. Hood Wright Park and found the mother doing her best to keep her eyasses out of the sun.  After the sun got lower, she took a break.  The nest has three eyasses this year.
