Hawklets a long shot for New York Couple

I've periodically been passing along news of Pale Male, a red-tailed hawk that lives on the ledge of a posh building on Central Park East in New York City. His latest brood was supposed to hatch in the middle of last week. It's now five days late.

The New York Post reports that the hatch is now a long shot.
"The 38- to 40-day incubation period has passed, with no signs of success. Today is day 46," the paper reported.

Meanwhile, several birds watched by webcams set up by Excel Energy have babes in the nest. Most exciting is the bald eagle near Platteville, Colo., that has two eaglets in the nest.
