Lola and Charlotte are the nicknames given two female hawks around Central Park who have been mothers in the past. Both hawks were getting ready for the next nesting season on Sunday
Lola, the lighter of the two hawks, was busy soaring around the Fifth Avenue nest and working on tidying it up. She will most likely lay eggs mid-March.
Charlotte, who nests at 888 Seventh Avenue, was seen eating a pigeon and chasing of a juvenile hawk up at the Sheep Meadow. She generally lays eggs a few weeks after Lola.
Both females have had nesting issues these last few years. May they both have a successful year in 2010.
