The hawks in Tompkins Square Park, copulated, rested and copulated again within an hour today. They didn't even bother to fly to another branch. Spring really is in the air.
Reports are coming in about how nests are doing around Manhattan...
- There is a pair hanging out in Chinatown around Canal Street and the Manhattan Bridge, but no nest has been found as of yet.
- There is a new nest at 116th and Riverside Drive, possibly the pair that abandoned a fledgling at Grant's Tomb last year. (Update 3/18/16. Grant's Tomb and the 116th Street might both be active this year.)
- The Sheep Meadow nest blew down over the winter and the pair has been seen bringing twigs to a number of buildings on or near Central Park South including Trump Parc, The Plaza and the Crown Building.
- The pair that tried to nest on the Beresford last year, as been seen bringing twigs to both the San Remo and the Beresford this winter.
It should be a fun year, and hawk watching will get easier after we change to Daylight Saving Time on Sunday.
