Hawks on Central Park East

For those of you who have followed the saga of Pale Male, a red-tail hawk that lives on a window ledge above central park in New York City, there is news: Pale Male and his latest mate Lola (at first birders called her Lolita, because she was young, but changed her name to be more respectful.) now have a clutch of eggs. They should hatch in about six weeks, according to the New York Times

I know, I know, Colorado has lots of hawks, why do we need to talk about New York's? I briefly lived in New York, and covered Lolita's arrival after Pale Male's other mate died. And they have a special place in my heart. Besides that, they are internet celebrities with plenty of online photos and gossip that are perfect for blogging.
