The nesting picture for NYC raptors has begun to solidify. After a recent update from Brett, who'se office overlooks 888 7th Ave., it seems that in addition to the 5th ave. nest, this nest will also not produce young this season. But there are definite stirrings up at the Cathedral, while CCNY remainins unknown. And the Fordham red tailed nest also is exhibiting feeding behavior! There also seems to be very promising news on the kestrel and peregrine fronts. I managed to catch up with the peregrines of 55 Water St., who have three chicks, on a lunch break (literally for us both).
Here's some video of the male flying in with prey to a calling female. She then runs to accept the gift, while he flies back out to Water St!
