5/7, St. John the Divine

Soaring at Sunset - 2229

Circumstantial evidence indicates that an egg or eggs have hatched at the red-tailed hawk at the Cathedral of St. John the Divine. The Urban Hawks blog reported on Saturday evening that the parents' behavior suggested so. A visit to the site early Tuesday evening found the female engaged in what looked to be the end of a feeding.

Unfortunately, the only looks I got of the female on Tuesday were of her feathery tail end wiggling around as she busied herself in the nest. The male, on the other hand, soared over the area at least four times while I was there, perching briefly atop the hospital twice and on Gabriel's horn once.
