Kestrel at St. John

The evening started slow with the eyasses asleep, and no one in sight.  Then an American Kestrel was heard, who dove repeatedly at one of the parents.  Afterwards, there was one active eyas in view before I needed to take off for the evening.

Jacobi Medical Center, Bronx, New York

When the New York Times had information about the Riverside Hawks on their blog, someone wrote that there was a nest on the Nurse's Residence of Jacobi Medical Center.  It was a nice day on Sunday, so I made the trip out to Jacobi.

I found a nest that looked like one from a previous year, but didn't see any hawks.  It's possible the hawks are nesting on a different section of the building and I couldn't see them.  Anyone work at Jacobi, who can take a look down at the Nurse's Residence?
