We're on hatch watch

The Washington Square hawks had their first hatch this last Sunday (April 16), so we are on hatch watch for Tompkins Square.

Below is a screenshot of the Washington Square nest from this morning that shows the first little bobblehead and the parents.


Tune in to the live NYU hawk cam for ongoing activity.

In past years, the Tompkins Square hawks have hatched a couple of days after Washington Square, so Christo and Dora could welcome their first hatchling any day now.  From the ground, it's impossible to see the eggs, but it should be apparent that something has happened when both parents are in the nest and/or Christo starts taking food up there.

Stay tuned...
