Botanical Gardens Redtails [formerly the Fordham hawks]
Letter received 3/24/09 from Carol Capobianco at The New YorkBotanical Garden:
Knowing your passion for our urban birds here in New York City, you’ll be interested to know that a pair of red-tailed hawks are building a nest on the Library building at The New York Botanical Garden. This is the pair that is believed to have previously nested at FordhamUniversity. Members of our Science department can see the action from their windows and blogged about it on Plant Talk today, http://www.nybg.org/wordpress/?p=2205.
Trump Park Redtails -- Junior and Charlotte nesting on a high floor at 888 7th Avenue
Brent B. Odom writes [to Bruce Yolton]
I just wanted to let you know that I can confirm at least one egg in Jr. and Charlotte's nest this season. I do not have any photos, but I was able to see Charlotte rolling an egg earlier today.
Other hawk news [from Bruce Yolton]
No more Houston St. nest. If she has established a new nest with a new mate downtown is uncertain.
Cathedral Pair has become scarce. They may have moved nest sites or she's hunkered down already.
City College Nest looks bigger, but no more info
Highbridge back to old safe spot.
Inwood Pair doing fine.
Pale Male's nest is at least an inch higher.
