310 West 72nd Street

Yesterday, the rehabilitator, Bobby Horvath of WINORR (Wildlife In Need of Rescue and Rehabilitation) got a call about an eyass crying from behind a flowerpot on a penthouse roof.  When Bobby arrived he found not only a Red-tailed Hawk eyass, but also a nest with a mother and another eyass, 75 feet from the lost eyass. The eyass that was crying was taken into rehabilitation and is doing fine.

The nest is hidden from the street and only if the remaining eyass stands up in just the right place can you see it. The nest is in a decorative gutter that runs the length of the facade, and is on the eastern end of the building.  The pair is most likely the same pair that nested a block away last year.

Washington Square After The Rain

Monday was rainy in New York City but it stopped in time for me to go to the park in the early evening.  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.
