Hawk highlights

Life is busy at the Christodora hawk nest.  This past Saturday, I caught my first glimpse of the chicks from the street below.

Hello!

Hello, world!

The cross atop St Brigid's on Ave B & 8th Street seems to be a favorite spot for blue jays (and other birds) to harass the hawks.

Dora needs to wear a hard hat!

I never tire of seeing her leap off the cross.

Meanwhile, Christo hunts in the park, now with three little mouths to feed.  Look up and you just might see him flying by with the next meal...
