4/13 & 4/17, St. John the Divine

Apparently my timing has been poor and perhaps it's my lack of patience, but it has been two weeks since I spotted a hawk in the nest at the Cathedral of St. John the Divine. A neighborhood dog walker assures me she has seen activity at the nest, so cross-your-fingers, let's hope things are going well.

It's not like I haven't seen a hawk at all. The male was perched at the top of the cathedral on the statue of the Archangel Gabriel early the evening of Friday, April 13.

Where he stayed for a half hour or more, waiting out observers below.

Early evening on Tuesday, April 17, the female hawk was perched on a gargoyle about 30 feet away from the nest.

Assuming there has been no problem, first hatch at the cathedral nest could happen in a few days. But given recent weather, well, who knows.
