In between love sessions, Christo and Dora have been tirelessly working on their nest in Tompkins Square.
Below, you can see the layers of the nest. The hawks have now built up a bowl of sticks on top of the base of leaves. Christo has been peeling bark from trees for the inner lining.
Christo proudly exhibits his work.
Below, Dora expertly snips a stick from a branch.
Meanwhile, Christo collects a branch from the redwood tree next to the men's restroom.
I have to wonder if he chose this branch of seeds for a reason. I don't know anything about redwood seed properties (do they smell good or deter insects?), so am open to any theories.
Maybe he's making a bead curtain...
