Fifth Avenue

While it's still possible we'll discover that there is a third eyass in the Fifth Avenue nest, for now it looks like we have two.  Pale Male was on the nest when I arrived and left to return for a brief visit an hour later.  The youngsters are being very well looked after.

Tompkins Square Park Feeding

I was thrilled to see the little head of an eyass feeding at Tompkins Square Park this evening.  It's best seen by very carefully watching the parents feeding the eyass on the video.  This is going to be one tough nest to watch, but I'm happy they aren't on an air conditioner this year!

2016 Manhattan Nests - Update 6

Please email with any corrections or additions.

Updates are:

  • Washington Square Park nest has hatched.  One hatch confirmed, but I suspect all three have hatched by now.
  • Feeding observed at Tompkins Square Park.
  • Two eyasses confirmed at 116th and Riverside.
  • Conflicting reports, but the 96th and Fifth nest appears to have failed.
  • At least two eyasses have been been in Pale Male/Octavia's Fifth Avenue nest.

(I suspect that Inwood Hill has hatched, but I just haven't received a report yet.)
