All Wet on 110th

I went by the Cathedral Church of St. John the Divine on my way home from Inwood Hill.  As usual for this nest, you couldn't see the sitting hawk.

I went down to 110th and saw a hawk on 301 West 110th Street.  It looked all wet.  It hasn't rained for two days.  Did the nest fill up with water during the Nor'easter and are they incubating the eggs on a water logged nest?  Or did the hawk just take a bath somewhere?

Update: Reports from other hawk watchers over the last few days is that both hawks have looked dry.  So, the verdict is that all is fine with the nest.
