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
