The Cathedral Hawks

For the past 10 years I have been intermittenly observing the RTH's that frequent the Cathedral of St. John the Divine. The last successful nest I observed there was in Summer of 2004. Below is a shot from that year!

Of special interest is the small space behind the saint with the raised left hand...

there seem to be a few sticks placed back there!
Well this year, acting on a tip from another blogger, I revisited the area and found it substanially more occupied!

There was even a chick! We were treated to his big, bad hawk imitation...

Also, the dad came on scene with a pigeon squab!

The female prepares to recieve the prey!

Later after feeding the chick, she flew out over the Park.

and perched on the top of CPN!

Another angle of the nest...

and Bruce spreading the word!

Today also revealed a second chick! Pictures pending!
