I’m mesmerized by the Hawk Cam. It’s amazing to me that hawks and other critters have all this knowledge programmed into them . . . when, where and how to build a nest, laying the eggs, sitting on them for a month, raising the hatchlings.
Red-tailed hawks are monogamous, so the male stops by several times a day. Sometimes he brings a delicious rat.
The nest is on the 12th floor ledge of a library at NYU. More info at the New York Times City Room blog.
