Brood time for the hawks in Tompkins Square

As luck would have it, as soon as we published the previous post about being on egg watch in Tompkins Square, Amelia went and laid an egg. It looks like it happened either Friday night or Saturday morning, so we are safe to call it for March 13.

The hawks usually lay three eggs, but we have no idea what's going on up in the nest, so we will just have to wait and see. Going by the first egg date, we can expect a hatch in about six weeks, so around the end of April or first week of May. When that happens, we won't be able to see anything, but Christo will start bringing food to the nest. In the mean time, there won't be much for us to watch except for Christo and Amelia taking turns brooding.

Happy spring!
