Behind the campus is the Ithaca College Natural Lands area
On days like we are having this week, it's a great place to go at lunch for
a good walk.

My office is on the top floor of one of the Towers and faces this area as
well. I've been watching a pair of Red-Tailed Hawks build a nest at the top
of a pine tree so I struck out yesterday to find them up close.

I know what tree they are in but failed to see the nest. I did see an
American Crow flying with nest materials as well but once he spotted me, he
rested on a branch and wouldn't reveal where he was going.

Those woods are also filled with Pileateds and other woodpeckers. And
randomly, co-workers have shown me pictures of hawks who roost on the
building outside the office windows including a Cooper's last year.
