I was in Greenwood briefly today. As I passed the vicinity of the nest, I heard a strange sound I'm not familiar with. Following the sound towards a pine tree I witnessed the redtail pair mating! 
Hopefully they will be productive. Im holding a good thought. :-)

The following is about an annual nesting pair in Inwood Hill Park at the northern end of Manhattan:

Saturday 3PM. Binocular view of still-leafless Inwood Park Hill from north across the Spuyten Duyvil showed a Red Tail Hawk nest still high (and inaccessible) on the ridge in last year's location. With the telescope, Barry and I saw a hawk on the nest. She was very tawny-pale on head and shoulders. (As in Pale Male pale?).
