St. John the Divine

This season has had its problems up at St. John the Divine.  The male of the pair died and was replaced by a younger hawk, and there has been repair work on the roof right by the nest.

Unlike many of the other New York City nests, we can't see the eyasses until they are about two weeks old due to the height of the nest.  So, with a new father and construction, there were lots of worries that we hadn't seen anything yet.

So, it was with great joy that the eyasses were finally sighted over the last few days by Robert and Lincoln.

I had gone up on Thursday and didn't see them but was rewarded on Saturday morning.  There appear to be two eyasses.
