The Roger Paw Blog reported on January 9th that a new Red-tailed Hawk nest is being established on The Plaza Hotel at Central Park South.
This evening, at dusk while I was watching two Black Crowned Night Herons (one adult and one immature), and hundreds of Common Grackles come home to roost, I saw one the Red-tails at the nest site. The Red-tailed Hawk stayed on the nest for about ten minutes and then went off to roost.
Hats off to the Roger Paw Blog for such excellent reporting! Finding a new nest site, this early in the season, is hard work.
