Oh, who am I kidding? Let's just turn this into a hawk blog for a while...
Late this afternoon, I met up with the Tompkins Square hawks, who were hunting for dinner. The male caught a pigeon and screamed to the female to come and get it.
I saved you a foot!
He continued to scream as he ate the pigeon, but the female didn't respond, so he eventually devoured it all himself.
Off to clean the feathers off his beak and talons...
And here sits the Queen, looking content as the sun goes down.
I just have to throw this in here as I've spent nearly a year looking for this kestrel on the Lower East Side. Today was finally my lucky day as I caught her sitting high on a pole. She briefly posed before taking off for parts unknown.
