Mixed Signals At Riverside
RFK Bridge

Riverside Status Still Unclear

I can't figure out what's going on at the Riverside Park nest.  Close inspection of the nest for a few hours, showed some hopeful signs such as the mother up high on the nest, her leaving the nest a few times, and both parents looking into the nest.  But nothing definitive.

The mother ate on the nest, but she seemed to be eating all the food herself and not sharing it with young eyasses. 

Have the eggs hatched and we're seeing odd behavior due to the heat, or have they not hatched and the heat has changed the mother's behavior?
