3/23, St. John the Divine

In all probability, the red-tailed hawk Isolde is now brooding eggs in her nest at the Cathedral of St. John the Divine. But unless you catch her in a switch-off with the male, the only way you're going to know she's up there is if you spot the tip of her tail feathers poking up above the edge of the nest.

Late Sunday, there was no such sign. But the male was hanging about the area. First atop the high chimney at St. Luke's Hospital for a few minutes, and then perched on the turret above St. Peter, about 30 feet from the nest.

It looked like his duties for the day were done and he was just chilling out until bed time.
