Tompkins Square Park Hawk nest, Hawk atop ConEd tower - February 22nd, 2014

I ventured out with a friend to Tompkins Square Park this morning to have a look at the Red-tailed Hawk nest I mentioned yesterday.

It was looking mighty fine:

Bobby's rat remains from a couple of days ago were still at the base of one of the apartment building railings:
