Bathing in rainbows

Allow me to introduce Hawk and her Rainbow...

A hawk and her rainbow

Magic!

Another sweltering summer afternoon in Tompkins Square drove this fledgling hawk to seek relief in the waterfall that was created by run-off from the swimming pool.

Ahhhhhhh....

Hawk bathing in a rainbow

Shake, shake, shake...

After her shower, the hawk briefly posed for admirers atop the fence next to the swimming pool.

She then moved to a light pole near the entrance to the basketball courts to dry off.

A few shakes, and she was off to return to the shady trees.
