The Tompkins Square hawks have a second egg!

It was laid between 3 and 4pm on Wednesday, April 2.  By now, there could be a third, but confirmation is still forthcoming.

Until then, here are some highlights from today.

  1. The location of the nest really scares me... will the young be fledging into the street.. are there trees / park close by so they can perhaps find a hospitable landing site? Memories of the Franklin Institute hawks (Philadelphia) who were landing in the street and had to be guarded/escorted by humans those first few flights...

  2. Thanks for these photos and helping keep us up to date with this pair; it is much appreciated. It would be great if the apartment owners started a LiveStream feed with that camera. The view of the nest is fantastic.
