Restless Hawk

I saw this immature last week in Central Park. It was inspecting tree holes.

I think it was inspired by the spring weather to think about making a nest. It picked up sticks and carried them, put them down again.

When I left the hawk it was standing with its foot on a newly collected stick, almost ready to start building.
