Ageloff hawk nest update

It appears the Frigidaire has won the battle of the air-conditioners to see which one hawks Christo and Dora would choose for their nest.

Both hawks have been hard at work building up the sides and securing the sticks.

It's a little more clear here.

While Christo flew back and forth between the nest and Tompkins Square Park with talon-loads of nesting material, Dora checked out luxury rental options on Houston.

I noticed today there is a plastic bag clearly visible on the nest. I'm hoping the birds either remove it or squash it down deep under the sticks so it's not a danger to future hawklets.

A hawk neighbor has also started posting updates on the nest here.
