I received a note last week from Ericka Norton about Washington Square Park. She said "Just reading one of your posts. On Saturday 2/27/10 I observed two Red Tails Mating in Washington Square Park then transporting branches to the top of 1 Fifth Avenue, very top tower east facing side. Something to keep an eye on."
I went down to Washington Square on Tuesday but didn't find them.
Today, I kept an eye out for hawks on the One Fifth Avenue tower from my office fifteen blocks north. The pictures are blurry but you can see two hawks. After years of having juvenile wintering hawks, does Washington Square have its first nesting adult pair?
