Christo and Dora have been busy [blanking] in Tompkins Square Park


[Photo by Bobby Williams]

Christo and Dora, the red-tailed hawks of Tompkins Square Park, have been quite active this winter. For starters, they have built a nest in the ginkgo tree near the Park entrance on East Eighth Street and Avenue B.


[EVG photo from yesterday. Lemme know if you need an arrow]

Head over to Goggla's site for the nest-building activity.

Meantime, it is high mating season. For the hawks. They have been busy, you know, mating. (Can you guys be like mature about this subject matter?)

Still, out of concern for our younger readers, we will not be posting any photos of the hawks being natural here.

However, Goggla has several tasteful photos of nature being nature (as my health-ed teacher referred to it in 7th grade) here ... and here.

Yeah, I thought the headline was supposed to read, "Christo and Dora have been gettin' busy…"

On occasion we see a redtail in Stuyvesant Square Park during the early morning hours. Not sure if it is either of the pair from Tompkins though.

This new location will be havoc for a nest webcam.

Have seen photos of red-tailed hawks mating - lasts a few seconds. Blink and you'll miss it. I'm sure goggla will help us out with this!

Ask a groundhog: another sign of an early spring?

Checked out Goggla's photos. I was shocked that they didn't smoke after.. well you know...

So they are taking the all natural nest approach for this year?

There are still signs of wild behavior in the ol' E.V.!

Christo and Dora are so boss. They have the BEST view of the neighborhood, better than ANY schumuck who dropped high six or low seven figures on a Shaoul, Toledano etc, co-op for $0.
