Tompkins hawk hatch confirmed

As I suspected on May 25, there has been a hatch at the Tompkins Square hawk nest. This was confirmed the following day when food was seen being delivered to the nest and a feeding took place.

Visibility of the nest is extremely limited.  This is all I could see of Amelia on Friday evening:

And, again on Saturday evening:

It's not yet possible to know how many chicks there are, but I hope we can see some fuzzy white heads appear over the rim of the nest in the next couple of weeks.

Check out Urban Hawks for video of a feeding on Saturday afternoon (during the Undead punk show!).
