Triboro hawks have grown up fast

From Urban Hawks:

Before I went on vacation, I went by and saw the freshly hatched eyasses nesting on the Astoria side of the RFK Triboro Bridge. I finally got back to see how they were doing on Saturday. The two of them looked great.

They look healthy and very grown up. Their tails need to grow in before they'll be flying off, but they'll be leaving the nest soon.

Great to see them, we need to protect them as they provide valuable service in eating rats etc along the shoreline and city.

I have seen the Astoria Park redtails several times. It blows my mind that they nest in such a busy area.
