FLASH! CHARLOTTE AND HER EYASS REUNITED AND NOW A SECOND SIGHTING!

IT'S HAPPENED! And now a second sighting and more good news!

3:30PM Bobby Horvath reports that a Central Park Ranger sighted Charlotte and her eyass sitting on the same branch next to each other near the Hechter Ball Field. Both birds then took off together, the eyass flying perfectly with his mother.

4:45PM (approximate time) Ranger Rob reports the parents caught a squirrel and are feeding it to the youngster.

HURRAY! Now the youngster has just as good a chance of making it as any other urban eyass.

The eyass is a "nobody knows yet". And as "it" feels so disrespectful to an animals alive-ness, many of us take a cue from the falconers of the Elizabethan Era, who called all raptors "she", as falconers do to this day, supposedly in honor of Queen Elizabeth I, if the sex of the bird was unknown.

I'm feeling ever so much better myself! And I'm sure Junior and Charlotte are too!
