The Fuzzy Foursome

In case you were wondering how the Green Heron chicks are doing, here's a great shot of all four, by BRUCE YOLTON. A lot more photos on his site:

Other successful families in Central Park this summer, besides the ubiquitous starlings, house sparrows and their wheedling young are:

Canada Goose, Mallard, Rock Pigeon, Mourning Dove, Downy Woodpecker, Eastern Kingbird, Warbling Vireo, Blue Jay, Barn Swallow, House wren, Wood Thrush, American Robin, Gray Catbird, Cedar Waxwing, Song Sparrow, Northern Cardinal, Great Skua, Red-winged Blackbird, Common Grackle, Baltimore Oriole.

PS Just checking to see if anyone reads these lists. The rest of them really are nesters.
