Riverside Hawks
My First Eastern Phoebe Of Spring

5th Avenue

I watched the nest at dusk on Friday and for about half an hour Saturday afternoon. 

On Friday, Pale Male brought prey to Lola.  He stopped twice while taking it up to the nest. Once on a balcony on a building a block south of the nest and once on a ledge on a building north of the nest.  The prey was a bird.  Once he got to the nest, Lola switched off and ate on a terrace a few blocks away.  After about half an hour she returned to the nest and Pale Male exchanged places with her on the eggs.  He then went off to the terrace to see if their were leftovers.

On Saturday, the "boys on the hawk bench", were kind enough to point out a new perch for Pale Male, on top of the building just to the north of nest.  They're doing construction by the water tower which has a large scaffold with a tarp around it.  He likes to sit on the upper right hand corner on days there are no construction workers.
