On the fourth floor level of the fire escape on a building on the northwest corner of 96th and Lexington Avenue, there is a new hawk nest. The female was brooding when I arrived and the male was briefly on a water tank before flying out of view. I stayed until after sunset, but didn't see a nest exchange between the two hawks.
Two changes today.
- The Highbridge Park nest appears not to be in use this year. I suspect there a nest in the park, but is as of yet not found.
- In Tompkins Square Park, Dora appears to have injured her wing again and has gone back to rehab. A new female is claiming the nest. There is a post on the EV Grieve blog. Laura Goggin Photography's has also posted about the events on Wednesday.
