Hawk (and egg) watch continues on Avenue A, now with the help of a live webcam

[Ageloff photo from last week by Bobby Williams]

Been a few weeks since we've checked in on red-tailed hawk parents Christo and Dora, who have been busy building a nest (or two!) on the top floor of the Ageloff Towers on Avenue A between East Third Street and East Fourth Street.

As always, Goggla has been keeping tabs on the developments over at Gog in NYC.

In addition, someone has set up a live webcam on the Ageloff hawk nest. Access that here.

There's also a new Tumblr, Two NYC Hawks and other things I LOVE, featuring some upclose hawk pics and video. Like this one, showing a rough landing by Christo (Dora not amused)…

And last week, The Greenwich Village Society for Historic Preservation's blog Off the Grid had a post on the history of the Ageloff Towers as well as the Christodora House, site of last year's hawk nest.

Tomorrow night, the Society is hosting a program titled The Red-Tail Hawks of Greenwich Village and the East Village — a lecture and slideshow with Gabriel Willow, a naturalist, guide and educator with New York City Audubon

Has anyone talked to the people who live in the apartment outside of which they're nesting? I'd love to hear stories from the inside perspective...

Damn. I'd rather have pteranodons.

I am trying to gain access to take some Dora and Christo + nest shots in Ageloff Towers or the apartments across the street. Please reach out of you can help. I'm grateful for any assistance!

Dora has blocked the camera with something this morning - perhaps her coffee cup? Hoping she or Christo do some furniture-arranging and let us see what they're up to.

That's so funny. Maybe hawks don't like permanent surveillance any more than humans do!
