Time to check in with the red-tailed hawks of Washington Square Park, Bobby and Rosie. The duo have nested outside NYU President John Sexton’s Office at Bobst Building in the southern perimeter of the park. And pretty soon baby will make five…three eggs were spotted in the nest!
A little family history: the hawks have been around for three years. The initial coupling was Bobby and Violet. They produced Pip, who has moved on to points unknown. After Violet fell ill and passed away in year two, Bobby was consoled by Rosie and they produced Boo and Scout, who have also left the family Village home.
You can watch the birds’ progress and if you’re lucky, witness the blessed event on the NYU Hawk Cam.
