5/4, St. John the Divine

Early Monday evening about 6:10, Madeleine the red-tailed hawk perched on the side of her nest at the Cathedral of St. John the Divine for five or six minutes.

And then took off, first flying over to the roof of the Avalon Bay condo, perching a half minute and then flying out over Morningside Park, where she started to circle around.

Too many circles to count, but after making it east past Manhattan Ave., she headed back west and circled over the Cathedral Schoo a few times.

And from there headed somewhere west-ish. No sign that she returned to the nest over the next 25 minutes, nor did I find her or Norman perched on the hospital roof where they have regularly been found at this time of the day during the past week.
