Tompkins Square Park Gets Serious

The Tompkins Square Park pair are getting serious about nesting.  They've built a new nest close to Avenue A and 9th Street, and the male is busy courting the female.  They copulated while I was there and he also caught a small rodent and went off to give it to his mate as a present.  So, it looks like everything is in place for spring.
