2016 Manhattan Nests - Update 1

Sheep Meadow

Tonight I found both of the Sheep Meadow hawks in different trees on the east side of Sheep Meadow.  They have built a new nest in the same stand of trees as the old nest, but in the Northwestern most tree in the group.  It doesn't look like the nest is ready for use yet, and the female did not spend the night in the nest.  It will be interesting to see if they end up using this new nest or use another location, possibly a building on Central Park South.  For now, we just have to wait and see what happens.
