FLASH!!! PIPPING AT THOMPKINS SQUARE NEST Plus an UPDATE of Other Hawk and Nature News
5/8th, 6:15am at TSP nest:
Francois Portmann reports that eggs are pipping at the Thompkins Square Park nest. He also snagged a great photograph from the cam of the eggs piping...something we don't often see on a Red-tail nest.
Note the parents standing on the verge of the nest watching the progress.
STAY TUNED FOR MORE AS IT COMES IN

I cannot believe how large and active Pale Male and Octavia's eyasses are already.

Rob Schmunk reports the first sighting of an eyass of Isolde and Norman's at the Cathedral Church of St. John the Divine nest. As Rob points out this eyass at first sight is old enough to look back.
I absolutely love this photograph of the eyass. For more click on the link under the photo.
And how about a look at the Fu Manchu Bunny?

Not only does bunny have a dark curved line as the beginning of his Fu Manchu mustache, his whiskers point down as well. Plus look at that shockingly arched eyebrow. Oh my!
