We got a few shots in between the snow and smoke hiding our bird. We couldn't see the bands but think it was BB hunkered down and trying to stay warm in the tower's heat. It must be difficult to find prey on a day like this.
Eggs hatch by 5/4-5 (as seen from Rand Building) Chicks cannot be checked or banded by DEC this year as access to the building has been denied by the Bankruptcy Court.
One large female was rescued on 6/14, checked, banded, given the name Statler and released from City Hall on 6/15. All five fledged between 6/14 to 6/19 and are seen flying between the Statler and Liberty Buildings.
