Saturday was just another enjoyable day at the Fifth Avenue hawk bench. Three eyasses being fed by their mother.
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.
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.
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.
Changes from the last report:
- Three eyasses confirmed at J. Hood Wright Park
- Three eyasses confirmed at Grant's Tomb
- Tompkins Square Park has one eyass
