A Second Day in Astoria Park
Confirming Three at St. John's Cathedral

Inwood Hill Park, Week 6

It was a hot day, and only one little window through the leaves is still open to take photographs of part of the Inwood Hill Red-tailed Hawk nest.   I only saw one eyas today, but I'm not worried.  About two thirds of the nest is now obscured from view.  It was a hot afternoon and I suspect the second eyas was keeping cool in the shade.

A head appears.  After no activity for over 30 minutes, I was afraid they had fledged.

A parent arrives.  Note the eyas in the background.
