On Saturday I went back to Ridgewood Reservoir for another bird survey, then the botanic gardens on Sunday for the cherry blossoms. I have lots of photos and two reports that will be up in the morning. Until then, here is a report that I just received from Rich Fleisher at Fordham University in the Bronx:

I was out digiscoping this afternoon and I was finally able to get some photos of the eyeases.  Looking through the scope I believe that there are two chicks this year.  If I remember last year, however, we thought we only saw two and there were really three in the nest.  This year's nest is even harder to see through.
