Deal reached to welcome celebrated hawks back at former Manhattan address
NEW YORK Two New York celebrities are being allowed to move back to their home at a chic Manhattan building.But the celebrities aren't people -- they're red-tailed hawks and their home is a nest perched on the Fifth Avenue building.
Yesterday, the building's co-op board and The Audubon Society announced plans to develop new nesting area designs that could get the birds back by the end of the week.
The birds have been the subject of a book and at least two television documentaries. They were evicted last week when spikes that held their nest in place were removed.
Their eviction has drawn strong protests from advocates, including one who was arrested on charges of harassing tenant and C-N-N anchor Paula Zahn and her family.
