Join us as we chronicle the lives of East Village red-tailed hawks, Christo, Dora, and Amelia, as well as other New York City wildlife.
that's sort if what i saw saturday afternoon toward evening. the pigeons that were feeding at the ave a side of tspark all of a sudden took off and started circling, with other pigeons joining them. i spotted the RTHawk riding thermals over the north side of st. marks. huge - musta been the missus? :-) the hawk and the pigeons flew around, the hawk inspecting its flock, like a cowboy riding herd.I-)
Sounds like you saw our old friend, the Dominatrix. She's been around the last few days and likes to sit in the tall sycamore on Ave A & St Marks. She's very distinctive - large, very dark face, and a lot of brown streaking on her chest. She also just has a personality about her - when she comes around, everyone runs away!
