Third Ones A Charm
Barn Owl

Crown Building

Today, while at the Pond at the Southeast corner of Central Park, I saw a Red-tailed Hawk with a branch, fly up to the Crown Building at 57th and Fifth.  It went to a balcony railing, jumped down to a terrace, and then flew around the building.  It wasn't clear where the twig was left.  The hawk then went to the Sherry-Netherland Hotel.

We've seen hawks here in the past, with nest attempts nearby on The Plaza hotel in years past.  But I've never seen fledglings in the park from this location.  Any reports from nearby office buildings would be appreciated.
