Amelia and Christo's 2020 red-tailed offspring: Look at the babies!
They start eating rats and grow so fast!
Amelia and Christo have three bouncing hawklets in the nest this season in Tompkins Square Park. (They are roughly 1 month old now.)
As always, Goggla has been documenting the activities of our resident red-tailed hawks... she shared these photos of the chicks, now more visible above the lip of the nest ...
So far, all three chicks look good and are getting bigger, she reports.
Here are a few more photos of the nest via Steven ...
Meanwhile, Goggla spotted Christo in action... this is from Tuesday night, as he snatched four rats in a row, and brought them to the nest...
And a good question: "So, I guess four rats can feed a family of five?"
One more piece of trivia: When was the last time Tompkins Square Park saw three hawk chicks? 2016!
