Broadway Bridge Fledge
More than any other NYC nest, Broadway Bridge is the most hazardous come fledge time. Its really a pick your poison kind of place: Deadly currents, a moving bridge, not one but two different trains (the 1 train and MetroNorth), plus a very hazardous road-deck. Today I was very relieved to see one of the two youngsters safely out of the nest and fairly well flighted. Great as that was, watching the parents hunt from the El was breathtaking. Here the parent goes inverted as it rolls down on some pigeons. The youngster settles in, but his sibling seemed ready to go. Good luck guys, Ill be watching as best I can.
