Washington Square Park was full of birders after a beautiful male Kentucky Warbler this afternoon. After photographing the Kentucky, I watched the nest briefly. I saw my first wing flap from the eyass, a great sign of things to come.
After visiting Tompkin Square Park, I hoped over to Washington Square Park to see the nest. Nice to see the eyass getting bigger.
Despite lots of looking by the hawk watchers of Tompkins Square Park, we've only seen one eyass who is now fairly big. Although I'd be happy to be wrong, it looks like we have an only child.
Blue Jays alerted me to an Eastern Whip-Poor-Will about 50 feet south of the waterfall at The Pond near Sixth Avenue around 62nd. It was a fun find on a damp day.
The pair of Peregrine Falcons nesting on the The Century on lower Central Park West supposedly have three chicks this year. I studied them for an hour and only saw signs of a parent. I suspect I'll need to make a number of visits to see the youngsters.
The eyasses on Fifth Avenue are easily seen and are doing a good job of moving around the nest. They were lots of fun to watch today.
The number of eyasses on the Tompkins Square Park nest continues to be difficult to determine. One for sure but most likely more.
This evening was windy (which resulted in some camera shake) but I was able to watch the parents and their eyass without any problems. The eyass has changed from white to gray over the last few days. It's growing up fast.
I got to see glimpses of at least on eyass in the Tompkins Square Park nest this evening, along with a Red-breasted Nuthatch. For such a small park, there is amazing number of good birds.
