4/18, Feeding Time

It looks like a definite hatch at the red-tailed hawk nest at the Cathedral of St. John the Divine. On Tuesday we saw the "concerned staring at the bottom of the nest" which often suggests a hatch in progress, and today it seems confirmed by Isolde spending 12-13 minutes leaning into the nest in fairly obvious feeding behavior.

Feeding Time

Norman apparently delivered food at about 6:40, as Isolde promptly got up and started feeding the baby(s). Norman took off a minute or two later, leaving Isolde about her work. The feeding concluded just before 6:55, when Isolde leapt out of the nest. She carried the remains of dinner up to a preferred spot on the roof of 54 Morningside Drive where she had a bite or two herself. She flew back to the nest a few minutes later, making a momentary stopover on the the roof of the hospital.
