Hawk highlights

I don't have any new hawk news to report, so here are just a few photos from this last week in and around Tompkins Square.

Christo goes after a rat along Avenue A...

...and here he is flying it towards me.  He flew it right over my head, but I can't focus on him when he gets that close, which is surprisingly often.

He only ate a bit of the rat before flying off to investigate something that caught his attention on the other side of the park.

Even the starlings can't resist his awesomeness.

He lights up the sky.
