  • 6-21-18   Empty Nest………for now

    Last week provided daily drama for the young Falcons from 55 Water Street.   06/BW (Jonnie55) was the first to test flight but landed by the FDR prompting a rescue. She was transported to the Bronx Zoo then to the Raptor Trust in New Jersey. No physical damage but she is currently reluctant to fly. The plan is to release her at the 55 Water Street nest when ready....

    The three hatched chicks from the nest at 55 Water Street have been examined, identified (as females) and banded by Chris Nadareski of NYC Department of Environmental Protection. The girls are healthy, a little noisy and so far, not inclined to test their wings. They continue to depend on meal delivery by Frank and/or Adele, enthusiastically receiving all food offered.

  • 5-2-18   The Hatching Has Begun- click headline for photo

    An irregular hole, a diagonal crack from end to end, egg rocking back and forth and Adele helping to push the shell apart. These steps preceded the Tuesday May 1st 10:48 am hatching of the first egg in the 2018 season. A soggy creature turned into a fluffy chick as it dried. Adele nibbled on the discarded shell after the birth. Last night egg #2 hatched.

  • 4-2-18   Full Easter Basket Egg #3 & #4- Click Headline for Photos

    The Falcons at 55 Water Street preferred the cover of the nest in an early spring snow. When the storm (and Adele’s body) cleared away, 4 large pink mottled eggs were visible in the nest.

  • 3-27-18   Worth the Wait Pre-Easter Egg #2

    The expected (and awaited) Egg #2 appeared today. Incubation occurs almost constantly now by either parent. Frank works hard pushing the eggs under his smaller (than Adele’s) body to ensure coverage and warmth.

  • 3-22-18 Big Day at the Nest- Egg #1

    The ledge provided a breakfast table for Adele (sideway Y black/sideway 9 green) to dine on a pigeon early this morning. Frank (30black/AN green) visited shortly after for a species continuation moment. At approximately 8:45 am the first egg of the season appeared.

  • 3-8-18   Same Falcon Pair, Better Eyes

    Adele (sideway Y black/sideway 9 green) and Frank (30 black/AN green) continue to make the nest at 55 Water Street home. A new camera system with sharper image and superior focus control will keep Adele, Frank and hopefully family on view. Both adult Falcons work at scratching a depression in the covered nest area preparing for eggs.
