The first photograph is of the nest ledge on the Bobst library and shows the location of the two cameras. (As in past years, I suspect we'll have a small blind spot on the western side of the ledge.)
Both adults were active in the park after about 4:00 pm on Friday. Locations visited were...
- Both hawks soaring high above Broadway from about 3rd Street to 10th Street, escorting a third raptor away.
- A visit by at least one hawk to One Fifth Avenue's north side
- The female perching on a water tank roof on the NW side of the park
- The female moving to the Silver building on the NE side of the park, perching on the AC unit, then on the NYU flagpole
- The male appearing low first on a street lamp on Washington Square North, then a tree inside the park's NE corner
- Both hawks then moving to the SW side of the park, the male to the Judson Cross, and the female a block outside the park on a Law School dorm roof
- Both hawks taking off to roost for the night. The female to an unknown location and the male to a pipe on a building at the NW corner of the park
