From NYC Audubon:

New York City Audubon is very happy to report that a nesting pair of Bald Eagles has been confirmed on the South Shore of Staten Island. The female eagle appears to be incubating eggs, according to local Staten Island birders, who have nicknamed the male bird “Vito.” The presence of breeding Bald Eagles in New York City is a testament to the success of the environmental conservation movement in cleaning up New York's waterways and wild habitats, and is cause to celebrate for all New Yorkers.

Check Audubon for more info on the birds and their nest in Staten Island.
