For those who can’t enough of the Hawk Cam family, here is a quick guide to coming events and online resources. The world of hawk fandom is ever-expanding.
* This evening at 7:30 p.m. in the chat room on Livestream, which hosts the live feed of the Hawk Cam, a hawk expert, John Blakeman, will be conducting a “Pip Quiz” about, among other things, Pip, who turned four weeks old today.
* On Sunday at 10 a.m., under the arch in Washington Square Park, there will be an informal get-together of Hawk Cam fans, rain or shine, organized by the chatroom stalwart Pondove. Bring binoculars. The view of the nest is pretty good.
And here are some places to go online:
*Everything we’ve ever published about the hawks here on City Room.
* The aforementioned Livestream chat often has upward of 200 people in it and can be very lively.
* The awesome Hawk Cam News blog, started and run by several Hawk Cam fans.
* The Hawk Lovers Anonymous Facebook page, a grassroots effort that, like Hawk Cam News, we had nothing to do with but which we applaud.
* The N.Y.U. Hawks Facebook page.
* The Urban Hawks blog, run by Bruce Yolton, has frequent coverage of the Hawk Cam hawks, including high-quality photos and video shot from the ground with a very long, very good lens.
* An extremely informative F.A.Q. on the Hawk Cam hawks by John Blakeman.
* A nice Flickr set.
* The hawks’ official Twitter account, run by N.Y.U.
* Pip’s Twitter account.
Have a great weekend.
