All good things….

….must come to an end.

I don’t know who said that, or even if it’s true. But this good thing will be coming to an end rather soon.

Those of us who became fascinated by the ongoing saga of the Washington Square Park hawks and their nestlings have created quite a community, both here and elsewhere online. Many of you have enjoyed the chat room here, as a way to keep in touch with the events in the park and with each other. I’m glad I was able to provide this venue for our virtual get-togethers.

Events in my life have made it hard for me to give the proper amount of attention to the chat room and the site. I’m going to close down the chat room but will leave the domain active for at least a little while longer. ¬†I hope those of you who want to continue your nocturnal visits will find another place to meet. ¬†Facebook has a chat facility, for instance. Google Hangouts is free and fun and easy to set up for those with a Gmail account, also free and extremely useful in many other ways.

Best wishes to everybody who helped make this community so much fun. Thank you.
