Red-tailed hawks nest on the Christodora House


[Photo yesterday by Bobby Williams]

In the past 10 days or so, two adult red-tailed hawks in Tompkins Square Park have been busy… carrying some sticks and various nesting supplies up to a window on the East Ninth Street side of the Christodora House.

Goggla has followed the action starting on Feb. 15 … she documented more of the action here … and here … there hasn't been much activity … until yesterday. It's the first time that we've seen one of the hawks actually nesting. Or whatever it is that they do in a nest.

No word on the asking rent. But the views are quite nice.

And Goggla has a lot more hawk/nest photos here.

has anyone asked the tenants if you / they can periodically / routinely photo the RTHawks through that window? webcam?

Thanks for the links, Grieve!

@Anon 10:31 - we're actually hoping the tenants keep their windows closed so as not to scare the hawks away from this location. If they do settle in, though, it would be cool to mount a camera somewhere.
