Red-tailed Hawks Update

As of this past weekend all but one of our four Brooklyn Red-tailed Hawks are still on nests. The new pair that appeared in Prospect Park this Spring next to the skating rink appears to have abandoned their nest. It's impossible to know if their reason for leaving was the ongoing (and very noisy) demolition of the rink below them or pressure from the other four resident Red-tailed Hawks, either way, they've definitely moved on.
