Tompkins Square Park Parents

I went down to Tompkins Square Park on Wednesday to look for the surviving youngster from this year.  Reports are that this hawk has recovered from its illness, and is still being seen in the park every few days.  I didn't get to see the youngster but caught up with the parents, who were on different church crosses in the neighborhood.

Pale Male and Octavia

Today both Pale Male and Octavia were both at the northern reaches of their territory.  Pale Male was on a building at 87th and Fifth, which has a nice view of the Reservoir and the birds migrating south.  Today, that included a kettle of Broad-winged Hawks and two Bald Eagles. Octavia was up north as well and I found her perched on the north side of the Met. This northern area is full of food in the fall, with rodents eating apples near the Hamilton Statue, song birds that die due to collisions with the Temple of Dendur windows, and rodents on the Birdle Path south and east of the Reservoir.

Octavia on Fifth Avenue

Octavia, Pale Male's mate was on one of her favorite perches this morning a window facing the park of a building just south of The Frick Collection at 70th and Fifth Avenue.

Pale Male and Hummingbird

Just a short video of Pale Male today on the "Oreo" Building, called this because it is brown with a white strip of bricks. Plus some photos of a Ruby-throated Hummingbird.  It was nice to have some sunshine today!
