It looks like the J. Hood Wright Park and CCNY/Shepard Hall nests are both inactive this year. I visited J. Hood Wright Park earlier in the week and saw a Red-Tailed Hawk perched on Haven Avenue on the west side of the park, so the nest may be in a new location this year. At CCNY, I didn't see any activity. The CCNY pair may have relocated to the radio tower they used a few years ago. Let's hope we hear some good news about either pair, later in the season.
The hawks at 96th and Lexington seem to be doing fine. The female was on the nest in the late afternoon and evening. Her mate was flying about the neighborhood, was hassled by two different American Kestrels and hunted unsuccessfully in a nearby park.
The Barn Owl in Central Park roosted in a new tree and was much more visible than in days past. It gave some great looks and took its time preening before fly out.
The Barn Owl was a bit easier to photograph today. It's now on its 8th day in the park, which is longer than expected. It regurgitated a pellet at dusk.
The nest on 350 Central Park West looked like it was doing well on a brief visit on Saturday. I can't wait until early May to watch our Manhattan nests hatch.
