When Chis Lyons and I arrived at the Fordham nest, we could only see two eyasses on the nest. Not really all that unusual as they can be far back and invisible or lying flat and invisible from the ground. But is fledging time. Groups of excited people passed by, took a look in the scopes, when suddenly a gentleman named Glen who worked for the university came over and said, "I saw a hawk up on the roof of Dealy Hall this morning around seven." Then he pulled out his phone, he'd taken a photo, and told us the bird didn't have a red tail. Bingo. One of Rose and Hawkeye's three youngsters had most likely taken the dive over the weekend. Chris thinks Saturday is likely.

Chris and I had already spotted one of the adults and when we went to the roof of Dealy Hall to check if the fledgling was still there we spotted her on an adjacent building. A grand time was had by all.

The full report with photos is in the works.
