Dear Hawk Friends,

   As you may have heard, the NY Times will not be hosting the NYU hawk cam this year. John Blakeman, 14th and I have been working with NYU to try to find a way to keep it going. There is one egg since Wednesday and I am awaiting an update, as eggs are laid every 2 or 3 days.

The good news is that NYU has decided to put a camera up! I didn't get a specific date but will know soon...all I was told was that a week or more. Not that much to see while Rosie is incubating for the nextweek, so that's OK. 

The important thing is that they said yes!! 

So stay tuned and John Blakeman, 14th and I will keep you abreast of the date as things progress.

Thanks to everyone for being part of this amazing cam! It will be great to see everyone again from the past 2 seasons! I am so thankful to President Sexton for once again allowing us to share this wonderful experience. 

Maybe triplets this time?! We'll know soon! 

Love, Pon

Many thanks to PonDove, John Blakeman and 14 for their efforts in getting a Washington Square Hawk Cam up and running for 2013Washington Square won't be HawkCam-less after all!

And a big Huzzah!, for President Sexton and NYU!

Happy Hawking!

Thanks so much for the good news!The NYU cam has introduced so many of us to "hawk watching". There has been no way for us to track this news so thanks for informing us.

It is exciting isn't it!

It is time for the hawkwatchers to gather once again either in person or cyber-wise. And yet again watch another generation of hawks make their way into the world!

HURRAY! Can't wait for the cam to start broadcasting. And shame on the NY Times for not sponsoring again!

Thank you so much!! I'm really looking forward to the cam again. Kudos to you, and to NYU, which has also taken the poison out of the 18 traps in the park, until August, John Beckman says.
