2020 Manhattan Red-tailed Hawk Nest Update 5

Sadly, the female of the Washington Square Park nest disappeared sometime in the late morning on Thursday and hasn't been seen since.  The nest has been abandoned. 

My thoughts go out to all of those folks who watched the live camera feed.  I know for many folks isolated in their apartments it had been a blessing.

The female is presumed dead.  There is a very small chance she is injured or trapped somewhere, but it is unlikely.  NYU staff have checked nearby roofs.
