Dinner drop

As we continue to wait for the youngest Tompkins Square hawk to leave the nest, parents Christo and Dora are feeding the older two fledglings in the immediate area.

The roof of CHARAS seems to be a convenient feeding spot.  Here, dad Christo takes a pigeon up to one of the fledglings.

Mmm, tasty pigeon leg!

Meanwhile, the other fledgling perches directly across the street.

Shaft, the red-tail fledgling

The entire hawk family has been spending time on top of the CHARAS building, so be sure and check the rooftop as you pass by.  You might see more than one flying object...

It's a bird, it's a plane!
