In addition to the Red-tailed Hawks, I was curious to see how the Yellow-crowned Night Herons were doing and the Common Terns.
The old Yellow-crowned Night Heron nest from last year was abandoned and I was unable to find a new one.
The Common Terns were out on Lima Pier. (I didn't see any on Tango Pier.) There seemed to be fewer than last year. They were concentrated on the middle of the arm of the pier where they nest and this year I didn't see any on the northern end of the arm like last year.
But there were lots of chicks getting feed, even if the numbers seemed lower.
If you're interested in Common Terns, NYC Audubon is having its annual It's Your Tern Festival online this year, on Saturday, July 18th from 10-11:30 am. Details are on their homepage, http://www.nycaudubon.org
