They’re back!

Those feathered falcons that nested on the Tappan Zee Bridge are in plain sight (when not elsewhere) via FalconCam. Their three chicks (eyases) born last April became the center of attention when project officials invited schools to name them via a contest.

Hudson, Bridge-ette and Zee — the winning contest names — or their parents came back last week to nest between now and April. After three to five eggs are laid (takes about one week), the chicks hatch about one month later.

You have two weeks to catch them — whoever the parents are — caring for the little ones until about six weeks later, when they leave the nest.

I’d like to know what you think.
