4/24, St. John the Divine

A short visit to West 113th St. on a cool early evening provided a quick look at the cathedral's male red-tailed hawk, who I think of as "Norman (2)" because he might or might not be Norman. He made a very brief stop in the nest and then flew across the street to the roof of the hospital's Plant Pavilion.

Looked around for a moment.

And then took off.

Alit on a cathedral nave buttress and checked out the mess that used to be the parking lot.

And then was gone.

Meanwhile, back at the nest, it was quiet. If there had been a food delivery, then it wasn't immediately required. Isolde sat quietly, just the top half of her head visible.
