Hawks Set up Nest around the Park — “Violet & Bobby” VideoCam Watch

In late January, I wrote about the hawks looking to set up a nest near the Park. Well, they’ve found a location! Right outside NYU President John Sexton’s office. NYU has set up a videocam to watch the hawks and the hatching process.

The New York Times has the story, Watching Bobby and Violet:

Its stars are Violet (named for one of the university’s colors) and her mate, Bobby (named for Bobst Library, atop which Dr. Sexton’s office sits). And in a few weeks, if all goes well, their hatchlings.

You can see live Video Cam here. It’s awfully cute to watch even when nothing seemingly is happening.
