The 'other' hawk



As Goggla first pointed out on Friday, Christo, the red-tailed hawk of Tompkins Square Park, has been seen in the companionship of another hawk while Dora recuperates from an injured wing.

The Park's hawkarazzi have been busy keeping an eye on the new hawk, called Not-Dora (Nora?) or Arod (for the opposite of Dora, plus Arod had an affair with Madonna).

Steven shared these photos of the new hawk hanging around the Park...













This relationship has possibly been blown out of proportion. To date, Christo and Not-Dora have only been spotted sharing a branch and, possibly, a rat.

As Goggla wrote on Friday:

Red-tails mate for life and the good news is Dora is alive. She will be released back into the park when she is healed, but that could take some time. What will happen at that time remains to be seen. I'm hoping everything will work out as it should.

"hawkarazzi " briliiant.

Not-Dora is cute and nature hates a vacuum. I hope for Dora's sake Christo does not decide to branch out.

Hard not to anthropomorphize here I suppose.

Hawks mate for life, yes - but Christo has no idea where Dora is, or if she's coming back. Therefore his hawk-brain will seek out a new mate ASAP. That's the deal with hawks, folks: survival of the species, etc.

Christo seems a bit confused by the situation. I'll be posting updates soon. It would be nice if everyone involved could just get along...

Am I hawk shaming if I say Nora looks a little slutty?

Over the weekend i heard a lot of noise behind my building — seemingly in the back lot — on 7th between 1st and A. Sounded like screeching — i thought either metal or maybe a hawk. Does that make sense?
