Riverside Park redtail update

A photo of the Riverside Park redtail nest-in-progress taken by James O'Brien on Thursday, Feb 21, 2008, and posted on his site:

It's beginning to look like this pair means business! The nest is more substantial now, and the pair has been observed building diligently.
Leslie Day, who first told me about the nest, wrote yesterday:

Hi Marie,. . .I walked by the nest site around 8:30 and there they were, in the park, facing their nest. .. There was a little crowd of people (see below) who had come to see them. Word is spreading! I have been watching them build now for 3 days and I don't think they are done. .
But... she mentioned that a dogwalker had reported seeing the pair bringing branches to a different nest site. So...we'll have to wait and see.
