This week's Tompkins Square hawklet update

The Tompkins Square red-tailed hawk chicks are now just over a month old and they look to be doing well.  They're well-fed and seem relaxed in their aerie overlooking the park.

These photos from May 13 show mom Amelia looking after the nestlings.

Here is a cute clip of one of the nestlings playing with a twig in the nest.
This short clip shows one of the chicks spreading its wings. 

And this clip shows all three just hanging out with mom while the sounds human children playing in the park are heard in the background.
These photos are from May 15.

Check out those pin feathers on the wings!


The photos below are from May 16 and the top one shows Amelia on the nest with one of the chicks.

They're growing fast!

More to come...
