I caught the last chick-feeding at the Tompkins Square hawk nest before sunset tonight.
Christo brings home the bacon...a plump rat.
Making some room, Dora clears out a half-eaten furry carcass.
On closer inspection, it looks to be the remains of a squirrel.
In the air, she transfers it from her beak to her talons.
Over the last three days, I've seen the hawks taking rodent remains out of the nest and dumping them in the middle of the park. People out for a casual stroll might want to carry an umbrella...
