Feeding In The Rain

After watching the Wild Turkey, I took a look at the Fifth Avenue Red-tailed Hawk nest and caught a feeding of the eyasses.  They're still to little to see from the street, but photographs by Lincoln Karim from a nearby building show two eyasses.

Central Park Wild Turkey

Wild Turkeys are not especially rare they are infrequent visitors to Central Park.  One was seen up in the Ravine on Thursday and it has been exploring the park.  I caught up with it on Saturday, near the Falconer's Statue.

Tompkins Square Park

I spend a cloudy evening looking to see if the Tompkins Square Park had hatched.  This early on you look for behavioral queues from the parents, since an eyass will be too small to see at this point.  I didn't see any of the behavior I was hoping for.  This doesn't mean the nest hasn't hatched.  It just means that while I was there, I didn't see any positive signs.
