Cathedral Activity Increasing
Fledge Date Guesses for Manhattan

Two or Three

The evening started quietly with the mother on the Archangel, and the nest quiet.  Then the father came in and did a feeding with food which was already in the nest.  Afterwards the eyasses were full of activity, and at one point it looked like we had three babies in the nest.  We'll know for sure in a few days.

Although this looks dignified, the eyasses don't have much motor control yet and fall down a lot.  They're still at the toddler stage.

Three eyasses are visible.  One flapping, one with its back to us behind the hand, and one on the right.
