Hawk Eyed

PHOTOGRAPHS BY JÖRG MEYER


A pair of red-tailed hawks captured the hearts of students and alumni alike when the raptors built their nest on John Drotos ’25’s 10th-floor John Jay balcony this past spring. Soon three eggs appeared, and the watchful parents became social media sensations. An online naming contest led to the pair being dubbed Ruth and Martin Ginsbirds, in memory of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg LAW’59 and her husband. A webcam live-broadcast their every move, and when two eyases hatched in April, it was cause for celebration!
