Washington Square Park

With the hot weather the lone eyass at Washington Square Park spent the early part of the evening lying down on the cool stone of the library.  I could only see it by walking to 9th Street and University Place.  Luckily, as things cooled off, the eyass became more active and could be photographed.

The two eyasses at Fifth Avenue are looking a lot older than when I last saw them.  They still need to grow longer tails and get some mature head feathers, but they're looking almost grown up. Their mother left them alone for over an hour this evening, another sign they're growing up.

Octavia was a little unsettled by two women using their balcony on the building just north of the nest.  Octavia was a little concerned by the new folks in the area who were just enjoying the warm weather.  She called out for about twenty minutes, voicing her displeasure at the new neighbors.

2016 Manhattan Nests - Update 9

Please email with any corrections or additions.

Changes are the confirmation the 84th and West End nest has hatched and the viewing of a single eyass at CCNY.  The Grant's Tomb nest no longer has an eyass on the nest, but there are no signs of a fledgling, so the nest may have had an eyass death.

2016 Manhattan Nests - Update 8

Please email with any corrections or additions. 

Changes are the count of St. John the Divine eyasses, now 3, and the discovery of nest building activity uptown.

St. John The Divine

The nest which is now above the statue of St. Peter about ten feet has three eyasses this year.  With the construction over next door, and the nest bigger than last year, the parents seem back to a normal pattern this year.
