Recent Raptors

The kestrels on Edgecombe seem to be sitting on eggs. In the 1 hr of watching, I saw the male fly in 2x, one with prey. He brought the food to the scrape, instead of transfering it as normal. This leads me to believe either they have hatchlings, or are very close to it.

Over at CCNY, there was this female sitting on the nest!

I witnessed 1 flyout/in, after which the female settled in for a long sit. Once down, she was impossible to see from the street level.
There's still a flicker of hope for the Cathedral visible sign of hawks on the nest, but I did see lots of white wash and 1 discarded pigeon carcass.
