Nest building

It looks like we might have a nesting pair of red tails in Tompkins Square.  Over the last couple of days, I've seen two adults tearing sticks from trees and carrying them around.

And this is a potential nest site, outside the window of a lucky Christodora resident.

There's already a small collection of sticks on the ledge and, if all goes well, we'll be seeing much more activity here.
