2017 Nest Update 7
Washington Square Parents And A Feeding

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.
