Good news! I've been watching the news with the eyes of a bobsmythhawk. I am so happy---as are at least thousands of interested birders et al.

Flyboy, Thanks for the update. I'm glad to hear that the nest is rebuilt and that the loving couple is doing the deed.

I am sure the birds don't appreciate us human "left overs" like smoke, cigarette butts, papers, and other JUNK we leave laying around.

I also saw a post about rats coming out at night. I guess he hasn't seen some of those back roads in the Back Bay. In full daylight I can see dozens of rats in back of the apartments (where the trash is). There aren't many who want to stroll on those thoroughfares. I remember when I was a kid (many decades ago) I saw a fight at mid day between a wharf (or Norway) rat and a terrier, which is also called a ratter. The terrier lost with it's throat ripped open.

New York High-Rise Hawks Have Egg in Nest

21 minutes ago


By RICHARD PYLE, Associated Press Writer

NEW YORK - New York's high-rise hawks are expecting an addition to the family.



Pale Male and his mate, Lola, who live on the ledge of a Fifth Avenue apartment building overlooking Central Park, have at least one egg in their nest, according to the Pale Male.com Web site run by Lincoln Karim, a video engineer with Associated Press Television News who devotes most of his spare time to monitoring the birds.

In December, the board of the co-op apartment building, whose tenants include actress Mary Tyler Moore and CNN anchor Paula Zahn, removed the hawks' huge nest on a 12th-story ledge, calling it a hazard.

The board later bowed to public outrage and pressure from the city and environmentalists, and restored a row of anti-pigeon spikes that the hawks had used to anchor their nest. Pale Male and Lola immediately rebuilt their nest.

The male hawk has sired 23 chicks with four mates since he first set up housekeeping at 927 Fifth Ave. in 1993.

Volunteers use the Web site to record every detail of the hawks' lives.

"Lola appears to be turning the eggs every half hour or so. Pale Male had two sittings today between noon and sunset," said an entry posted Sunday.
