2018 Manhattan Nest Update 12
Feedings and Blue Jays

Kestrel and Eyasses

When I arrived at the 96th Street nest this afternoon, the mother was on a nearby building being harassed by an American Kestrel. She took it in stride. 

She had gotten her chest wet, something that is commonly seen with Red-tailed Hawks.  It's a mini bath that doesn't get the flight feathers wet.  So her ragged appearance is nothing to worry about.

The eyasses looked healthy and well fed as usual.
