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.

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.
