No hawk babies in Central Park this year but...

Fledgling at the NY Botanical Garden

Last year at about this time Richard Fleisher, Professor in the Political Science department at Fordham University, sent in a report about a family of redtails that nested on the Fordham campus. Yesterday he sent in this year's report and some photos, including the one above:

Hi Marie,

The Fordham Red-tails, Hawkeye and Rose, moved their operation to the New York Botanical Garden and have successully fledged three. Similar to their nest on the Fordham campus, this year's nest was also built on the pediment of a building.
