When I visited the 350 Central Park West nest on May 9th, everything seemed fine. The mother was feeding, the father nearby and three healthy eyasses were popping up.
On Tuesday, I saw no signs of life in the nest and no sign of the parents. I stayed for over an hour in a light rain. While it is possible that the eyasses have grown enough for the parents to leave them alone for an extended period of time, it seems odd this early in the season.
I will revisit the nest soon, but we should prepare ourselves for bad news about this nest.
