Two chicks confirmed so far for Tompkins Square red-tails

The red-tailed hawk chicks in Tompkins Square are getting big enough for us to see them from the ground. This afternoon, one of them gave us a wave as mom Amelia looked on.

Hello, world!

You can get an idea of the nestling's size below. It is covered in white down and has yet to show any pin feathers.

There is a second chick barely visible behind the sticks to the right of the one who is standing up.

I believe there is a third chick, so we will just have to wait a little longer for confirmation. Stay tuned!
