Construction Workers Work Up the Divines

Isolde, alert on the nest, and surrounded by workman's scaffolding-3/05/08

Today, I received a report from blog reader, Terry, who informed me about an interaction between The St. John the Divine Hawks and two construction workers at The Cathedral. He reports that one of the Cathedral Hawks after repeated vocal alarms, began warning swoops over the workers who were near the nest. The workers, who were not wearing their hard hats, did not retreat and after the efforts by the hawk to deter them failed, there was contact with one of the workers which resulted in a minor injury to the human.

If you have any further information on the incident, please get in touch by clicking the "Contact me" button.

Coming up later this evening, an update from Chris Lyons on the Fordham nest, Rehabber Bobby Horvath on frounce, and, I hope, more information on the death of the three Riverside eyasses.

Minor injury to the worker or to the hawk?

The worker, who from what I've been told, was not wearing his legally required safety equipment.
