3/30, St. John the Divine

Passing along 113th St. after the rain started late Sunday afternoon, I was surprised to find one of the cathedral red-tail hawks perched out in the wet. The male (Norman? Mr. X?) was atop the construction netting on the Minturn Pavilion at St. Luke's hospital.

Red-Tailed Hawk (6730)

In the cathedral nest itself, Isolde is apparently brooding eggs. Although I have yet to catch the duo in a switch-off, Isolde was visible in the nest last Monday, hunkered down with just the tip of her tail in view. Hatch time seems likely to be in the April 20-25 timeframe.
