In Riverside Park just north of the Boat Basin, a pair of red-tailed hawks have made a nest in a London planetree. I chatted with a woman who told me that this is the same pair who had built a nest last spring and hatched several chicks. Unfortunately, the nest fell from the tree before the chicks could fly, killing the chicks. There are three chicks this year, although I saw just two plus the adults plus dinner.
