Uninformative hawk update

There's not much to say, really.  The height of summer means not much in the way of East Village hawk-watching.  Christo and Dora are still around, but I've not seen any of their kids since the first week of August.

Last season, Dora disappeared in August, right around the time the older two kids took off on their own.  I don't know if she went on vacation, or if she could have accompanied them on their travels.  At that time, Christo spent a lot of time in Tompkins Square Park looking after the third sibling, who remained in the neighborhood for a few more weeks. 

This year is very different.  We've not had the opportunity to play with the hawks in the park like last year, which is pretty disappointing.  However, as both parents are still staying close, I have to wonder if the youngsters are still around, too.  They can be impossible to see when perched high in the trees.

Anyway, here is Dora as she sat atop Village View at First Avenue and 4th Street this morning.


And here's Christo atop St Nicholas of Myra on Avenue A and 10th Street this evening.


I'm looking forward to more hawk action as fall sets in...
