Tompkins Square Park after years of hosting juvenile hawks, finally looks to have its own pair of adults who have built a nice nest on top of an air conditioning unit at 9th Street and Avenue B. I had gone to visit last weekend but didn't take any photographs as the hawks were inactive.
Today, I found two very active hawks. They copulated three times and flew around the park multiple times. The nest reminds me of the nest we had a number of years ago on Houston and Avenue D.
This pair is very, very easy to watch. This should be a fun year for the residents who live near the park.
